Few of his works are now seen in New York. Bokaer’s production “REPLICA,” created with Daniel Arsham and Judith Sánchez Ruíz, is currently engaged in a 5-country tour.

Such works include Gounod’s “FAUST” (National Opera of Poland), Verdi’s “AÏDA” (Opera of Rome, Italy), “KOOL” in tribute to Suzushi Hanayagi (USA/Japan) and the exhibition “FRONTERAS” (IVAM Museum, Spain).
