Quixote is an evening‐length, memorized, music-­theatre-­dance piece performed by the interdisciplinary ensemble, HOWL, that Kirsten and DeChiazza founded to continue the vein of collaborative theater-work they began together with Colombine's Paradise Theatre. HOWL features the four members of Sandbox Percussion Quartet, as well as vocal artists Lindsay Kesselman, Hai-Ting Chinn, and Kirsten Sollek. The work was developed through a collaborative process in a series of workshops spanning two years, giving Kirsten and DeChiazza an opportunity to sharpen, deepen, and extend their integrated expressive language. Quixote was commissioned, produced, and developed under the auspices of Peak Performances at Montclair State University (NJ).
