new works

EVA


Super excited to announce that NATIONAL SAWDUST, an incubator for contemporary music in Brooklyn, has given us a residency to begin the creation of our new opera EVA.

EVA is a new 75-minute opera scored for five vocalists, chamber orchestra and electronics with a libretto drawn from the recently published Diaries of visual artist Eva Hesse. Thunderstruck with pain, Eva collapses in her loft hurtling us back in time to confront the pivotal artistic and personal moments of her tragically short life.

Composer - Anna Clyne

Libretto - Kitty McNamee and Jocelyn Clarke 

Dramaturg - Jocelyn Clarke

Conceived by Kitty McNamee

"Highly imaginative" "Ingenious" "luminous" ... don't miss COLONY COLLAPSE

I hope you can make it out to see COLONY COLLAPSE...i had an incredible experience working on a NEW play! Such a rare and beautiful treat in LA. The cast is golden! See highlights of Press below...and don't forget the discount code: Bees2016.

"Highly imaginative...In Kubzansky’s hands, the complex storytelling finds the seamlessness, emotional resonance and magic that are characteristic of her work at Boston Court, where she is co-artistic director, and elsewhere."
Critic's Choice LA Times

  "The world premiere of playwright Stefanie Zadravec's entrancing COLONY COLLAPSE receives an ingenious audience-immersive staging as the 50th mainstage production of The Theatre @ Boston Court. Jessica Kubzansky firm-handedly directs her cast of ten stellar acting talents in the hold-your-breath interlinking stories of the surviving parents of children gone missing."
