"A visionary who pushes the boundaries of the genre defiers" Apr 8, 2014

"There’s no real point trying to caption Wayfinders with a label—song cycle, music theater, video space opera?—since Waller’s new work maps out a region of its own, synthesizing these elements into a deliriously hypnotic performance experience.
