"It's called 'ghost: a border act.' One of the things that's really interesting...apparently one of the main productions was of the silk that's produced for coffin linings. So I didn't know that, and I thought it was very interesting then, once I made the title, you know, how things that you pick up when you're actually in a space end up being part of it."
