Antigonick by Anne Carson
A collaboration with shadow puppet artist Erik Ruin, performed at Panorama Space in Philadelphia in November, 2016. The staging combined three overhead projectors with shadow puppetry, illuminated cantastoria choruses, and original music for harp, violin, viola, electronics, and operatic soprano.
This performance was a benefit for the Youth Art and Self-Empowerment Project, Through its work in the Philadelphia jails, YASP provides space for incarcerated young people to express themselves creatively and to develop as leaders both within and beyond the prison walls. Young people who have been through the adult court system are at the forefront of YASP, leading the movement to keep teenagers out of adult prisons and to create new possibilities for youth around the city.
