Eat The Document: Libretto reading and musical excerpts at Center For Fiction in Brooklyn
March 11, The American Project presents a work-in-process showing of my new collaboration with librettist Kelley Rourke, an operatic/music-theater adaptation of Dana Spiotta's acclaimed novel Eat The Document. Shifting between the protests of the 1970s and the consequences of those choices in the 1990's, the work explores the connection between those eras, and where we are today - through their language, technology, music, and activism.
