and there was a new voice which you slowly recognized as your own
NOTE: If sales have ended, there are still tickets available at the door!
Margaret McNeal and Stephanie Lavon Trotter use their voices to compose within the multiplicity of textures and timbre, with and without electronics, to expel and transform our stories, shared in sounds, song, and text.
This work 'and there was a new voice which you slowly recognized as your own' plays within the art form of 'opera' as an immersive, multi-disciplinary presentation that inspires and influences dialogue. We ask how can we process grief and cultivate listening & empathy, as individuals and a collective?
A PWNW Alembic Co-Production, this work is also funded in part by the Regional Arts & Culture Council.
Arts for All tickets are available for this event, please email email@example.com to reserve your A4A ticket.
