Here are some highlights of PearlDamour’s 2019:
PearlDamour’s book on our MILTON project is out, and you can pick up a copy here. Huge thanks to our wonderful publishers, 53rd Street press, for working so closely with us on this book, which includes the script to the play plus essays about our process.
After a successful and informative public showing of Ocean Filibuster last December, we dove into more drafting in July with composer Sxip Shirey and our dear friend Evan Spigelman, pinch-hitting for our performer Jenn Kidwell. A new ending! A new approach to backing vocals using a snazzy Midi Fighter. Keep an eye out for our September premiere dates in A.R.T.’s 2020-21 Season.
Our book on PearlDamour’s MILTON project has been published by 53rd Street Press! It contains the full script of the play as performed in Milton, NC along with essays on our work with the “5 Miltons” over the course of the project. Please consider buying a copy HERE. And you can still read more about the project on our Sky Over Milton website.
…Do you ever feel like you’re racing towards your own death…?
OCEAN FILIBUSTER will have its premiere with the ART in October 2020! We will be deep in development until then, working with scientists, artists, and our astounding creative team:
Performer JENN KIDWELL (along with a chorus of 6): composer SXIP SHIREY; scenic and projection designer TAL YARDEN; sound designer MIKAAL SULAIMAN; costumer OIVER GAJIC; and stage manager LISA MCGINN.
Stay tuned for updates throughout the year.
Thank you to SPACE on Ryder Farm, where we spent a week with Sxip Shirey, our composer for Ocean Filibuster. Met great people, ate great food, worked in beautiful spaces and got a huge amount done. Residencies like these are so important as times to come together and focus– we’re super grateful!
