Suzanne Haag reflected on the collaboration, saying, “Collaborating on a ballet with Tracy Bonham was an absolute career highlight for me as a choreographer and a magical experience for all of us at Eugene Ballet. Tracy’s music is vulnerable, open, and honest. Her resilience through challenges gives her music that relatable voice, that message that says, ‘this is hard but still beautiful.'”
