Collaboration / Installation


FORTUNA is a collaboration/installation between visual artist Tuba Koymen, the choreographer Susan Douglas Roberts and , set to music by Brian Banks. The dance was built around a common fascination with fortune cookies, a “wish tree”  and the questions were “what happens when we hang our hopes and dreams on another?”

Where do our fortunes lie? and with whom?
