Collaboraction seeks musicians for world premiere, Red Island, by Carla Stillwell, directed by Anthony Moseley, composer and music director Shawn Wallace.
In Red Island Cousin Brother challenges his niece Future, a 16 year old aspiring musician, to make meaningful music that challenges this backwards world that we live in. But first Future must understand how we got to this era of inequity, hate and MAGA hats. Red Island is a musical satire that shines a light on our nation’s outrageous history and the ridiculous evolution of American “isms”. Red Island shows us how art and music can be the catalyst for a revolution.
Musicians will work with Music Director to learn the score prior to tech rehearsals. Band will consist of bassist, drummer, and pianist. There is a cast of eight plus understudies.
Collaboraction incites social change through original devised theatre and community engagement that cultivates knowledge, dialogue and action around Chicago’s most critical social issues.
