A special sneak preview presentation of Prophetika: An Oratorio happened at Snug Harbor on Staten Island and SILive.com covered the event:

La MaMa presents
Prophetika: An Oratorio is a journey into the rebel soul presented through a fractured lens, atheatrical kaleidoscope, using found ethnographic images, darkness and light, prerecorded sounds, live music and compositions of mysterious physical collaging. Powerful and potent
images of blackness, prophetic and profane, terror and beautiful emerge as an Escherlike torrent out of the darkness into the light, out of the silence to be heard.
Concept/Direction - Charlotte Brathwaite
Composer/Pianist - Courtney Bryan
Featuring - Jadele McPherson, Brandee Younger, Courtney Bryan, Justin Hicks
