ARDEA ARTS - Opera Out of Bounds
Executive & Artistic Director
New York
I've been making new American opera for diverse audiences of all ages and all walks of life since 1988. Our current project at ARDEA ARTS is "BOUNCE The Basketball Opera." BOUNCE is a story played on a Basketball Court through the game of basketball with experienced basketball players working side by side with singers and rappers. The story addresses many of the salient issues of our time - particularly how to come back from the trauma and tragedy of gun violence to fly again. A powerful award-winning community engagement program emanates from BOUNCE. I am looking forward to meeting old friends and colleagues, and discovering new. Let's talk! Let's talk BOUNCE: "Opera Out of Bounds" "An artist reshaping her craft... at ease in worlds radical or traditional, and comfortable with combining the two." SEE YOU AT THE FORUM!! And! If you have a break, please come visit us at our studio in SoHo, NYC - 463 Broome St. Studio 1A, NYC 10013
