Take a Surreal Journey with Opera Parallèle as Kurt Weill's Mahagonny-Songspiel collides with Francis Poulenc's Les mamelles de Tirésias for an original post-apocalyptic steampunk opera. In search of water and an elusive paradise across a desert wasteland, a theater troupe sings the jazz-infused melodies of Weill's short opera, co-written with Bertolt Brecht in 1927. Along the way, they come upon an audience for their performance of Poulenc's outrageously surreal satire about a man who gives birth to 40,000 babies in a single day. Surreal Journey fuses these two landmark works and brings them into the 21st century. Learn More

First half was a full 5 stars! I was on the edge of my seat. The choreography was stunning and fresh. Very immediate. Very now. The second half started out fresh and got slightly stale as it progressed. Three stars for the second half.
Robert Moses’ Kin (RMK) today announces the company’s 18th annual home season to feature the world premiere of NEVABAWARLDAPECE, a major collaborative project among Artistic Director Robert Moses, Obie and BESSIE award-winning writer and performer Carl Hancock Rux; Afro-Celtic, Folk-Funk, Hip-Appalachian vocalist Laura Love; MacArthur Fellow, blues musician, and composer Corey Harris; and former Meredith Monk lighting designer, Stanford faculty member, and visual designer Elaine Buckholtz. This power team of collaborators comes together to create NEVABAWARLDAPECE, a full-company work exploring critical moments of change in America’s liberation movements, insurrections, and revolts.
From John Brown to today’s populist Occupy movement, Moses and his collaborators will consider our nation’s efforts toward humanistic transformation in the 19th century to today. Performances of NEVABAWARLDAPECE mark the first time all of these artist collaborators – Robert Moses Kin’, Rux, Harris, and Love — will perform together live.
