Since their first collaboration performing Italian Night 2012, Jayne and Lynne have created a series of interdisciplinary performances at Arcosanti and Cosanti that have explored the Solerian idea of architecture-as-instrument, of space and creativity.

With everything from operatic solos to sing-a-long pub songs ringing out across the mesa, CONNECT was no exception!
