This December 2017, Artistic Director Joel Ivany and Music Director Topher Mokrzewski collaborate with recent Victor Martyn Lynch-Staunton Award winner, composer Kevin Lau, to bring Handel’s music—which evokes themes of abandonment, neglect and betrayal—into the present. In the wake of the world’s refugee crisis, this workshop will explore the current state of those displaced, dehumanized and mistreated, with texts and stories drawn from real-life news articles and world events. #AtGBound is the first workshop in a three-year “concept to realization” production, which launches this year.
#AtGBound is sung in English, with a new English libretto by Joel Ivany. Each performance is roughly 1.5 hours with no intermission.
