In the summer of 2001, Linda Smith conceived of the idea of combining theatre and concert music to create a new kind of performance piece. It resulted in the piece written by Kate Hawkes called Composers in Skirts. Blem joined the team of Smith and Hawkes to perform the theatrical aspects. This unique blend of two art forms created a mode of artistic expression unlike any other. The team of actor and pianist created an exciting new synergy and creative spark. And so a partnership was formed: Not Only...Productions. This ensemble will continue to create new pieces that explore those stories that haven't been told; in which the music gives insight into the person and the person gives insight into the music.
