Prairie Torch Song follows Wendy McNeill through the patient moments of her tour through a movie set. The piece is set to Wendy’s “Cigarettes and You” and  Wendy visits each of the crew members in their quiet moments. Everyone is taking a smoke break. 

In 2008 a small crew took over the sound stage of the Victoria Composite High School, mentoring students and working collaboratively to put all the crew on camera through an elaborate dance of activity.
