IN DEVELOPMENT: TRANSPORT
Produced by The Why Collective, the project is a double bill fusion of the one-woman chamber opera, Another Sunrise (Heggie/Scheer), and the rarely performed oratorio, Judas Maccabeus (Handel). The project utilizes interdisciplinary story-telling, staging, music, dance, interactive projections, and ASL to tell a story of survival and ask questions of what it means to be a hero.
