Her Holiness, The Winter Dog
Presented by New Hazlett as part of the Community Supported Art Performance Series
Thu-Fri, May 30-31
In a dystopian future, humans cause the extinction of all animals. Now they must use humans to replace their sacred pets. To protect their status and religious values, three sisters hire a guardian of faith who dresses and lives as a dog. As their spiritual leader, The Winter Dog incites change— but not in the way they expect.
A contemporary chamber ensemble that challenges the boundaries of performance and celebrates women as leaders in the arts. Commissioned by Kamratōn, the opera is composed by Curtis Rumrill and librettist Zachary Webber, and will be premiered under the musical direction of Daniel Curtis, by Kamratōn, Quince Ensemble, and Shana Simmons Dance.
