COPING MECHANISMS

RHYMES WITH OPERA PRESENTS

COPING MECHANISMS

by Bonnie Lander

May 19, 2017 AT 8:00 PM

Fully Staged Work

Rhymes With Opera concludes the 16-17 season with founding member Bonnie Lander’s improvisatory opera Coping Mechanisms, in which our ensemble of singers create their own narrative, textures, characters, and vocalizations, focusing on our need for both privacy and communication in modern society. The performers define their space and characters through music and action, while also coping with the inability to control each person’s boundaries from the others – both physically and sonically. Coping Mechanisms explores how individuals create personal spaces while simultaneously longing for community and connection, which can potentially threaten the sanctity of these very spaces.
