Far Away was designed as a work of concert and new media. The National Children's Chorus (NCC) premiered it with Coro Diminuto's projection at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica on December 18, 2010. Coro Diminuto then performed the Cuba premiere with a projection of the NCC at the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes and the Teatro Mella in Havana on July 17 and 20, 2011.
Far Away also exhibits as a video installation. It debuted in this form at MALDEF's downtown headquarters lobby in downtown Los Angeles from July 14 - 20. It has been been dispayed by Center Theatre Group and will be exhibiting at Inner-City Arts in January 2012.
The many phases of creating this work of art reflect a transformation in two cultures' attempts to communicate and understand each other. The fascinating collaboration has been filmed from its beginning and will culminate with the children meeting and performing together in Havana and Los Angeles in 2012.
