Eve Apart A new opera/musical in four acts
by Tim Hinck with Libretto by Kip Soteres
Co-Produced by CTC and Artisti Affamati
Eve Apart is a musical-theatrical work (chamber opera) that explores figures of epic stature: Adam & Eve, Lilith, The Serpent of the Garden of Eden, and the mysterious "Nameless Second Eve." Drawing from ancient mythology – mainly Kabbalist mysticism and Midrashic literature – this operatic piece of musical theater explores gender identity, myth, religious paradigm, and human nature. The work features a cast of nine singers, a live, musical ensemble, and multimedia technology. Created by Tim Hinck with libretto by Kip Soteres. The Chattanooga cast: Sara Snider Schone, Desiree Soteres, David Tahere, Michael Dexter, Laura Sage, Caitlin Hammon, Marianna Allen, Jason O'Neal, and Blaine Tooley. Composer Tim Hinck was music director for CTC’s rousingly successful production of Les Misérables; singer Michael Dexter was CTC’s Jean Valjean.
"While the story, the staging, and the visual elements are quite heavy and serious; you will find the music score engaging and melodic. " –Tim Hinck
Gee's Bend by Elyzabeth Gregory Wilder
Directed by Bruce Shaw
Co-Produced by CTC and ShawnNuff Productions
Gee’s Bend follows Sadie Pettway and her family as they turn to quilting to provide comfort and creative expression to their lives. What begins as a labor of love soon turns into a spiritual and artistic awakening. Pieced together from discarded clothes and seasoned with laughter and tears, the women sew a patchwork of inventive abstract designs in rich, blazing colors. Stitch by stitch, the stories of these strong women are revealed as their experiences unravel and inspire them to create what the New York Times called "miraculous works of modern art." Based on actual quilters from Gee’s Bend, Alabama, the play offers glimpses of family life in 1939, 1965, and 2002.
