Traces (2016)
"Hope springs eternal in Carolyn Dorfman’s new ‘Traces’" - Robert Johnson,

A groundbreaking work from the same creative team that brought you the acclaimed Interior Designs. Episodic in nature, Traces explores our common origins as human beings — the forces that shape and change us–divide and connect us. It delves into our family roots and foundations and our contemporary collective journey. At its core, it is a work about memory, history, legacy and now. It reveals images of nature, the magnificence of the universe, mans relationship to the earth and each other.

Traces had its World Premiere on April 8, 2016 at NJPAC (New Jersey Performing Arts Center)
