B. Madonna at La Mama in New York
Internationally acclaimed performer, Maureen Fleming brings
her contemporary unveiling of the myth of Persephone to the stage of
the Ellen Stewart Theatre. With text by David Henry Hwang and music by
Philip Glass (performed live by pianist Bruce Brubaker), original
accordion music by Guy Klucevsek, and Taiko drumming by Kaoru Watanabe,
this beautiful, multimedia meditation on ’miracles’ juxtaposes Fleming’s
new and repertory works with three-dimensional video projections
designed by longtime collaborator Christopher Odo.
