"Across the Road" (2009), is a 55-minute solo video and performance work in which a young Irish couple face a defining conflict over inherited lands. Taking place in Ireland, action shifts between the mediums of film and live performance at specific narrative moments, with the two characters (played by a single actor) performing alternating solos. 
 
With an orchestral score by Erin Gee, Across the Road was developed in part at The Chocolate Factory, chashama, and through a series of residencies at Daghdha Dance Company in Limerick, Ireland, with Mark Carberry and Laura Dannequin.
