This piece, written for Nick Photinos’ 1:2:1 Intensive, tries to capture the emotions of leaving, re-entering, and generally coming to terms with COVID quarantine. “Hibernation” tries to express the combination of anxiety and relative safety that those who were largely able to remain at home during COVID felt daily.
“Hibernation” premiered on May 30, 2021, performed by Michael Rosin.
