Artist Statement 


Jennifer Gonsalves is designing costumes for the entire cast of Death With Interruptions, a dramatic music work by based on Nobel Prize winner José Saramago's novel Death with Interruptions. With music composed by Kurt Rohde and a libretto by the distinguished UC Berkeley historian Thomas Laqueur, the story recounts what happens when death, who lives in an unnamed Iberian country with her taciturn scythe, falls in love with the principal cellist of a local orchestra and fails to claim his life. 

Jennifer Gonsalves is collaborating with Axis Dance and guest choreographer Joe Goode to provide costumes for the upcoming production of "to go again", a dance theater work that brings to light issues facing our nation's veterans and addresses their resilience following severe life changes.
