VERY excited to work with Conductor JONATHON HEYWARD on my upcoming original production of FIREBIRD!

JONATHON is forging a career as one the most exciting conductors of his generation. Currently Assistant Conductor of the Hallé Orchestra, the young American was also selected to be part of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra’s 2017/18 Dudamel Conducting Fellowship program.

Collaborating with some beautiful folks for our mad take on the eternal Firebird. In addition to the fabulous team at LA PHIL, Cathy Cooper is designing, Conner Marx is our Stravinsky and dancers are Kelsey Landers, Isaac Huerta, Baden Silva, Derek Schiesel and Ty Wells. Hope you can join us for some truly extraordinary music and story.

here is a bit about the show:

With all original concept, choreography, and stage/costume design, the story of LILIT physically cross-examines historical gender contradictions and amplifies ancient female howls through a deafening channel of thrashing virtuosity. Her story takes shape in the edgy silence of a hovering unmarked enemy. She is the folkloric assignment unseen female forces and the answer to otherwise inexplicable phenomena among men.
