WI-based new music ensemble Lilith commissioned a program of pieces from Shara Nova (My Brightest Diamond), Brad Wells (Roomful of Teeth), Joanne Metcalf and myself. Premiered on May 21, 2016, this program centered around body issues (male gaze, objectification, sickness, wellness, etc.) and used choreography, projections, and lighting to create a devised, multi-disciplinary, musical performance piece.
Lilith is Margaret McNeal (soprano) Dylan Younger (clarinet) Kyle Stalsberg (viola) Jon Hanrahan (piano) Dan Reifsteck (percussion)
