Teeth is a 10 minute minimally staged dark comic micro-opera for solo piano and fixed media. Set in the pandemic year of 2020, our very dramatic heroine pianist sits at the piano, home alone. She muses cynically, grapples with losses in her community and debates who or what has the most responsibility for her mother’s death. Her vivid, vaporous imagination invites us in. Commissioned by Eliza Garth. Coming in Fall, 2022
