Jiehae Park (NYC) will examine navigation, loss, and the loneliness of clock time in Here We Are Here, in collaboration with designer Tristan Jeffers. The project grew out of the question: what if a playwright and a designer collaborated on a project from the very earliest stage, before a single word was written?
