    ​“I have a partial responsibility to freeze smoke. As an understudy learns the tones and lines of the leading performer--I try to capture smoke’s thin visibility, prove its hardness,and understand how it signifies the fire while also haunting the site of the burn. Smoke’s fade-to-black is a familiar performance, an act of refusal and mystery to be seen by the audience. Smoke is Derek Jarman’s Blue, it is Sylvester’s falsetto set to a Julius
    Eastman score. Me and smoke are kin, “He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother.”
