Joseph C Phillips Jr & Numinous: The Grey Land

October 16, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Visit Roulette.org to purchase tickets today!

The Grey Land is a mono-opera, which through the lens of one Black mother’s experiences navigating American society with her son, explores universal themes of humanity and identity through the intractable triumvirate of race, class, and power. This work ruminates and comments more specifically on the larger longstanding systemic societal, economic, and cultural issues the recent spate of police shootings and protests have brought to the wider public consciousness, while integrating a variety of writings, film, dance, as well as dramatic elements in order to advance a non-traditional narrative that embraces the social multitudes and “dichotomies of high and low, inside and outside, tradition and innovation” within black culture. This world premiere will be a semi-staged, concert version of the composition.”
