#KickstartingKiki is an evening of work by Brittany & her writing partner, Felix Jarrar.
From songs of their very first opera where they met, The Fall of the House of Usher to Songs of the Soul Beams, their first writing collaboration, culminating to the release of their Kickstarter video to fund their newest Dada jazz opera: Tabula Rasa! Enjoy this clip :
Daniel Felsenfeld and Kate Gale have masterfully crafted an opera about Kinsey's studies of human sexuality. Brittany is honored to be serving as dramaturge in the development of this awesome piece.
After it's smashing success at BAM this past June, three venues will be presenting this work.
Songs of the Soul Beams is a song cycle focusing on the afterlife; where you go when you go, and what happens to those you leave behind.
Venue & date release coming soon!
Tabula Rasa, a new Dada jazz opera with score by Felix Jarrar, explores the real-life impulse and heartbreak of Kiki de Montparnasse, and her liberating romantic escapades with artists throughout the 1920s in the Montparnasse quarters of Paris. Brittany just spent a few weeks in Europe walking the streets where Kiki and her lover Man Ray used to live, love and make art.
