One Small Step was conceived as a companion piece to One Dark Night which was presented at last year’s Tête à Tête: The Opera Festival. As the mother of two girls, I wanted to write a short piece that would bring to life one of those special moment’s as a parent. SN
One Small step is a promenade piece which charts the emotional journey of a couple as they witness their child’s first faltering steps. A cappella duet, intercut with a percussive score, charts the highs and lows of watching a child learn to walk.
