Two Sides Sounding: The Unsung City
Singers from the Two Sides Sounding collective uncover everyday injustices through modern operatic works. During the program, the premiere of Ellen Mandel’s Haiku NYC joins Sidney Marquez Boquiren’s Stop and Frisk, which tells of two lifelong friends struggling with different interpretations of a police incident, and the premiere of Daniel Felsenfeld’s Bruce Bailey, an urban cantata centered on the Tenant Rights activist.
Mashuq Deen: Draw The Circle
In this touching, comedic one-man play, Mashuq Deen plays the roles of his family and friends, sharing his story of being a transgender Muslim American and revealing how his very conservative family dealt with his transformation.
