Celebrating the 200th Anniversary of Walt Whitman's birth, Compagnia De' Colombari presents a free performance at the Park: More Or Less I Am (MOLIA), a music-theatre piece adapted from Whitman's first major work, Song of Myself.
In 1855, Whitman called upon his fellow Americans to contemplate the needs of the nation from a broader and more philosophically inclusive perspective. Today, MOLIA invites us to contemplate what it means to be part of a diverse democratic society.
Compagnia de' Colombari is an international collective of performing artists founded and directed by Karin Coonrod that generates theater in surprising places. Original music by Colin Jacobsen, Kyle Sanna, and Eric Jacobsen.
Free; registration required.
Compagnia de' Colombari (Company Colombari) is an international collective of performing artists, generating theater in surprising places. Colombari intentionally clashes cultures, traditions and art forms to bring fresh interpretation to the written word--old and new--and commits to using any means possible to flesh it out. Colombari brings performers and audiences together, thereby transforming strangers into community. Colombari is founded on the twin principles that the magic of great theater can happen anywhere and be made accessible to everyone.
