Photo Preview: 'Conjur Woman' at La MaMa
by BWW - Jan 28, 2008

In honor of Black History Month, La MaMa e.t.c. is proud to present Beatrice Manley's Conjur Woman, a dramatic folk opera chillingly sung by Obie-Winner Sheila Dabney and directed by George Ferencz, a resident director at La MaMa. Original music for Conjur Woman is composed by La MaMa Founder & Artistic Director Ellen Stewart along with Sheila Dabney, Harry Mann, Jasper McGruder and Yukio Tsuji, and is played on a cornucopia of instruments including a harmonica, washboard, jug, acoustic guitar, bass and percussion…think 1800s music of the slave. Performances take place January 31 to February 10, 2008 in a limited engagement at La MaMa's Annex Theater in NYC. (more...)
