“There is nothing else like AMOC”
Los Angeles Times
From the enterprising artistic collective and masters of interdisciplinary experimentation the American Modern Opera Company (AMOC) – the New York premiere of a new work presented in collaboration with 92NY’s Unterberg Poetry Center.
the echoing of tenses is a new staged song cycle with music by acclaimed composer Anthony Cheung and poems by seven of today’s most compelling Asian-American poets, including Jennie Xie, Ocean Vuong, Arthur Sze, Monica Youn, and others. Their texts, which are sung, spoken, and interwoven throughout the production, are interconnected through the themes of memory, identity, and assimilation. Performances by tenor Paul Appleby, violinist Miranda Cuckson, and pianist Conor Hanick.
Concert available for viewing online for 72 hours from time of broadcast.
