WITH PERFORMANCE BY:
Chamber Band: With unchecked charisma and a near-mythical dedication to pouring every last ounce of themselves into their performances, Brooklyn mainstays Chamber Band have ascended to indie rock notoriety in a scene already notorious for being pretty far out there. www.chamberband.com
Rev. Yolanda: Singer/songwriter/trans-femme performance artist, and Interfaith Minister who's work as an Artist and Sacred Activist has been honored as a Blues Hall of Fame award winner, 2 time MAC Award winner, and as a member of the GLBT Hall of Fame. http://www.yolanda.net/home/
Emily Johnson-Erday: Drawing on an upbringing in old-time, classic country and Appalachian music traditions and layering in jazz, blues and some musical theater, Emily's original songs are sassy, scintillating, serious, sensual, and sometimes surprisingly silly.
Aaron Lindenberg: Singer-songwriter, arranger, and multi-instrumentalist. He works in new musical theater, plays in bands and performs his unique blend of Folk, R&B and electro-pop throughout New York City. You can hear his voice at soundcloud.com/aaronlindenberg.
Melanie Rose Thomas: Brooklyn-based theater artist, writer, and producer. She is the Managing Director of Daughters of Elysium, a women driven artist collective and theater company that produces work rooted in ritual and mythology. Her original work includes folk operas, poetry, song cycles, and scores for both theatre and film. MelanieRoseThomas.com
An excerpt of the original puppet piece Molting: Violence is like the gasoline for a car: inflammable and highly destructive, yet it keeps this world moving. Molting is about confronting all different forms of violence in our world, struggling against the violence that we face from the society, and embodying the violence present within ourselves. The main character is I, who has turnt my own body into a sponge that keeps absorbing and keeps being squeezed. leahogawa.com // valeriepham.com
