Composer Michel van der Aa combines classical instruments, voice, electronics, actors, video, apps, and even web browsers in his multidisciplinary work. His broad musical vocabulary embraces these elements alongside film, stage direction, and the written word, allowing him to create works that are as visual as they are aural.
This dynamic young creative voice comes to the Armory for the North American premiere of his latest creation, a chamber opera for soprano and 3D film based on the life and work of South African poet Ingrid Jonker. Soprano Miah Persson sings live, combined with replayed loops of herself and the voice of Baritone Roderick Williams on film to create haunting musical passages and ensembles. This groundbreaking work combines live action, innovative techniques of interactive film, and inventive music to consider human memory, the ways in which we reconstruct and deal with traumatic life events, and notions of individual realities
Julius Caesar enters Rome on the Feast of Lupercal as a hero beloved by the populace. He has triumphed first over the Gauls, then over the army of the Roman general, Pompey. When the senators see the reaction — including Mark Antony attempting three times to crown him as a king — some take this as a threat to Rome. Senator Cassius in particular has serious misgivings about Caesar's ambition.
As a great storm besets Rome, Brutus ponders his course of action. Disaster threatens the Republic, but the cure may be worse than the disease.
Please join The Onomatopoeia Theatre Company as we explore what would cause the senators of Rome to remove Caesar from power. We also want to examine how these senators ignored and misread the will of the people of Rome, causing a long and bloody civil war once Caesar was gone.
The last great generation of the Roman Republic was full of legendary people. What lessons can we learn from these people for ourselves today?
Renowned 20th-century African-American artist "Uncle Jimmy" has died poor and alone; his life's work — a radical retelling of the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn called The Illuminated Twain — is left behind in pieces. His estranged son James Clemens Jr. struggles to eulogize his father when he is interrupted by the arrival of Uncle Jimmy's widow, Edna Finn, the self-proclaimed last living descendent of Huckleberry. Written by W. David Hancock in collaboration with visual artist Wardell Milan, Master exists between the language of theater and the silence of art as it confronts the inadequacy of our American stories head-on and imagines a new freedom.
Enter The Portal and follow Dante through epic deserts and alpine mountains as he seeks the beautiful and mysterious Beatrice while being pursued by his inner demons. Driven by epic rock music that pulses with tribal and electronic beats, The Portal is part concert, part movie, and part performance. It not only entertains but also immerses the audience in a journey of transcendence and empowerment.
