The Seagull in Harvard Yard
Directed and adapted by Eli Zuzofsky
I had the pleasure of creating the music and performing as the seagull along with a talented cast of actors.
Myrtle formed in 2018 under the mentorship of Esperanza Spalding. Collaborators Claire Dickson and Camila Ortiz unite their disparate artistic backgrounds, drawing from jazz, contemporary classical, indie rock, and performance art to create fresh, emotive songs grounded in an embodied and profoundly collaborative practice. As a part of Harvard University’s upcoming Arts First festival, Myrtle put on their first full-length narrative performance, integrating live movement and theatrical elements into their performance practice. Myrtle will release their first EP in August 2019
