REHEARSAL: Song of Eurydice
May 29, 2016 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm| $10
performance: 5 PM SHARP
mediated discussion: 5:30 $10 suggested donation
Song of Eurydice is a choral / movement piece that re-envisions the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice as a call to marginalized artists, emphasizing a discourse between Eurydice (mecca vazie andrews) and the deity of the underworld, Persephone (Carolyn Pennypacker Riggs). Picking up where the ancient tale left off, Eurydice descends once more into the Underworld to contemplate its infrastructure and inhabitants.
This work-in-progress preview of Prelude + Act 1 marks the LA premiere of Sophia Cleary’s REHEARSAL series. REHEARSAL, founded in 2011, is a works-in-progress performance series in which one artist or group shares their work with the opportunity to hear back from their audience. Loosely following the Liz Lerman Critical Response process, REHEARSAL provides a nurturing and structured space for feedback for artists at any stage in their process.
