I am thrilled to be a part of this very special collaboration. Steel Hammer, a mythological, fantastical deconstruction of the tale of John Henry, is being created by Ann Bogart and SITI Company, the Bang on the Can Orchestra, and four playwrights-Carl Hancock Rux, Kia Corthron, Regina Taylor and me. The piece premiered to sold out audiences and rave reviews at last year’s Humana Festival, and is set to begin a severely cool national tour this fall, culminating in a week-long run at Brooklyn Academy of Music in December. The schedule is:
*Krannert Center for the Performing Arts – September 26, 2015
*Center for the Art of Performance, UCLA – October 23 & 24, 2015
*University of Virginia, Blacksburg – November 17, 2015
*OZ Nashville – November 20 & 21, 2015
*Brooklyn Academy of Music Next Wave Festival (NY Premiere) – December 2-6, 2015.
If you can make it to one of these cities (I plan to be at BAM in New York, please feel free to join us!)
