Event description

Description

A reading of ICONS/IDOLS: Irene, the first in a trilogy of choral plays. Mixing music, movement and text, ICONS/IDOLS recovers the secret history of these purple empresses as they ascend in a society with deep animosity towards female rule. Deeply committed to religious icons, these powerful empresses sacrifice personal relationships in an attempt to gain enough power to re-introduce them into an empire that fiercely and violently opposes iconography.

The development of ICONS/IDOLS received funding from OPERA America's Opera Grants for Female Composers program, supported by the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation.

ICONS/IDOLS has been developed in The Jam, New Georges’ performance lab for early career female artists, and was developed in part at Ice Factory 2016, a program of New Ohio Theatre.
