an exploration of where the theater world & the rock and roll intersect.
More About the Project: This season, Jess Conda is a resident Artist at Brat Productions, a Barrymore Award winning, non profit theater company that has been making cutting edge, boundary re-defining theater since 1996. As part of her residency, Jess will develop and perform as lead artist in a cabaret series that explores the intersection of rock and roll and theater. These cabarets will involve collaborations with rock musicians and theatrical actors and directors from the Philadelphia area. Each show will have fully realized production values and will be presented as part of Brat's 2011-2012 season. Brat is able to supply some of the funding to produce the series. Additional funds raised through Kickstarter will contribute to stipends for collaborating artists, advertising needs and production values.
from Jess: "This series marks a major personal step forward as a lead artist on a project that I am conceiving and developing. These shows aim to find the bridge between the rock and the theater world, as well as do what BRAT and I do best--create theatrical EVENTS. This residency also marks my first attempt at personal fundraising, another critical part of being an independent artist making original work. Every little bit helps make the series better, pay artists for their time, and helps me grow and define myself as an artist. Thanks for being a part of this process and much love. xojc"
