Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber

Date City Venue Coun­try
Event: Brer Rab­bit: The Opera
01/22/15 — 01/23/15 Brook­lyn, NY BRIC House United States
Time: 7:00pm. Age restric­tions: All Ages. Box office: 718–802-9095. Address: 647 Ful­ton Street (at Rock­well Place). Venue phone: 718.683.5600. Brer Rab­bit: The Opera is an explo­ration of trick­ster­ism, techno-animism and urban sur­vival tech­niques, that tack­les the mod­ern dilemma of gen­tri­fi­ca­tion through the lens of leg­endary black folk­lore hero, Brer Rab­bit, and his birth­place, the Briar Patch. A col­lab­o­ra­tion by per­for­mance artist Aisha Cousins, musi­cian Greg Tate, and Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Cham­ber, Brer Rab­bit: The Opera will merge music, per­for­mance art, and com­mu­nity engage­ment to cre­ate a final piece that engages BRIC vis­i­tors of all cul­tures in reflect­ing on the life lessons our respec­tive Briar Patches have taught us. Fire­works is BRIC’s res­i­dency and com­mis­sion­ing pro­gram for col­lab­o­ra­tive teams of artists who are inter­ested in devel­op­ing new, large-scale mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary work. Fire­works pro­vides resources to develop large-scale cre­ative projects that cross—or erase—artistic bound­aries. Sup­ported by the Rock­e­feller Foundation’s NYC Cul­tural Inno­va­tion Fund. | More infor­ma­tion
