CO-COMMISSIONED BY ODC THEATER AND AMERICAN MODERN OPERA COMPANY (AMOC) BOBBI JENE SMITH IN COLLABORATION WITH KEIR GOGWILT FEATURING OR SCHRAIBER, MIRANDA CUCKSON, AND A SPECIAL ORIGINAL MUSIC COMMISSION FROM MATTHEW AUCOIN
Taking its name from the etymological root of “accuracy,” ad-curare, With Care performs the contradictions and complexities inherent in the desire that motivates both care and its removal. How do we accurately measure the shape of our desire? How does it measure us? How does care keep us together while also burdening the relationships it maintains? Continuing the cross-disciplinary work of A Study on Effort, Smith and GoGwilt investigate these questions through music, dance, and dialogue, alongside Or Meir Schraiber (dancer) and Miranda Cuckson (violinist).
American Modern Opera Company is the artistic home for some of the most diverse and vibrant singers, dancers, and instrumentalists of our generation. AMOC acts as the incubator and executor for our 17 core members’ most ambitious, innovative projects. Our commitment is to working as an ensemble to reimagine the experience of opera – from conception to performance.
