In September 2019, Svitlana Reinish provided visual solutions for an opera performance of West Side Story, by Leonard Bernstein, in the context of the Sefer Jewish Book Festival of Barcelona. This festival was organized by Mozaika, a Barcelona based organization that promotes Jewish culture, while the performance was produced by UNIT: Art Solution, a Ukrainian NGO that innovatively promotes art, and particularly music, and introduces it to new audiences.
I was worried because it was the first time I was creating visuals for a complete opera, especially in another country where not everyone speaks English, but in the end, everything worked out. An international team from 7 countries was brilliant. I felt a part of a big production. As well felt very proud of myself as I managed to solve some technical problems in order to make the projection look better at the venue. Afterward, I’ve received great feedback and several propositions of collaboration.
