Show director and co-producer, Ray Buffer says of Christopher,“Fernando and I developed a kind of short-hand early on. He’s very intuitive. He takes the time necessary to insure that steps are learned and most importantly… are safely performed. I really like his attention to detail, and the way he communicates individually with the cast.” Buffer adds,“Fernando has brought the appropriate amount of distinction to each piece of dance. ‘Joseph’ has a variety of musical styles, and Fernando has found ways to match those styles with very different angles and staging.”
