Jennifer Wen Ma sat down with me to talk about her residency at Performa 13. "It's not a performance in the traditional sense of performance art. It is experiential art." Her residency, which spans eight days, lifts the curtain on what it takes to make an opera. Her performance shows the audience the opera process, from start to finish, culminating with her final short piece.

"The passion, the drive, that it is in you every morning -- that can not be replaced." Watch as I talk her about what motivates her to create, the best career advice she's been given, and what art means to her.
