I entered a competition. Actually, we entered a competition. Here in Berlin.

It was a prize for an opera concept, and I luckily had an amazing partner, a composer who has done many strange, wonderful, complicated things. And won some prizes. I haven’t won any composing prizes, largely because I am not a composer, but I make up for it in moxy and strong conceptual ideas, despite all odds.

Please explain what just happened.

I have no idea… actually I just had an ice cream and was about to fall asleep before I realized it was 8PM and I should really try to stay awake… so here I am answering these questions, hoping it will keep me awake.
