Additional Post-Show Panels Announced for THE OTHER MOZART
Little Matchstick Factory is thrilled to announce additional post-show panels and discussions taking place after performances of THE OTHER MOZART, currently running at HERE (145 6th Avenue, one block south of Spring).
THE OTHER MOZART gives voice to Nannerl Mozart, Amadeus's sister, whose own musical accomplishments were eclipsed by her brother. A keyboard virtuoso and composer, Nannerl faded from history, leaving nothing behind. Featuring music by Nathan Davis and Phyllis Chen (members of the International Contemporary Ensemble, currently in residence at the Mostly Mozart Festival at Lincoln Center) THE OTHER MOZART brings this forgotten musical prodigy to life.The panel discussions examine the loss of Nannerl's work while also discussing the current challenges faced by women in creative fields. Each discussion takes place immediately following the performance: July 1
"Women Composers"With Annie Gosfield (composer), Du Yun (composer, multi-instrumentalist and performance artist), and Pauline Oliveros (composer/ central figure in the development of experimental and post-war electronic art music) July 3
"Women in Theater: Female Entrepreneurs"
