American musician, composer and director Paula Jeanine Bennett brings an evening of her folk opera for all folk, “A Village Of One” (AVOO) to Lamakaan. AVOO is a music and theater piece that has travelled to Indonesia, Morocco and recently Bhubaneswar, Odisha, at the Kalanirvana Art Center. It addresses the loneliness of the modern soul backlit by village sensibilities and illuminated by catchy songs – and solar lighting!
For this presentation, Paula will talk about her recent experiences adapting the piece in India and share her compositions.
The audience will be invited to raise their voices too.
Venue: Lamakaan – An Open Cultural Space, Feb 12, 7:30 pm.
