String Beings (2007) is Snappy's newest work. A collaboration with MIT New Media Artist Jonathan Bachrach and Boston Symphony Orchestra first violinist Lucia Lin, String Beings will premiere at Snappy's 10th Anniversary Season in Boston in May 2007. Using live musicians, who will become integral parts of the choreography, and realtime technology projections, the new piece will explore issues of manipulation in Snappy's typical style, that is keeping the work on a knife edge between seriousness and humor.
