Preview of upcoming PROPHETIKA

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

"The 60-minute piece, destined for a La Mama run this spring, evokes three historic figures: Jazz musicians Sun Ra and Alice Coltrane, and abolitionist Harriet Tubman.   Ancient Egypt, a touchstone for all three, was a prominent design theme."

La MaMa presents
An Oratorio

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
