Temporary Shelter had it’s first chance to really come to life today! In order to make sure everything works in real life the way it does in my head, I took the piece to Stephen Wise Free Synagogue where it will premiere on November 7 and, with the help of my parents, put the piece together in the sanctuary. There are still a few small finishing touches to work out, but it was really exciting to see it all assembled and in the synagogue.
I also learned a few valuable lessons including the fact that I need three people and two ladders to put up the piece and take it down. If anyone wants to help with the set-up or break-down for any of the venues, let me know!
