With Irondale EnsemblePart one of a cycle of Brecht plays written during Brecht's exile from Germany in the 1930s and 1940s. Galileo is a reexamination of the classic play about Galileo's struggle for truth against the Catholic church with a new original score by Sam Day Harmet that nods to the original Hanns Eisler score, but lives largely in the 21st century with abundant electronic sounds mixed with banjos and clarinets. Irondale Center, Brooklyn, NY, Winter 2019.
Part two of a cycle of Brecht plays written during Brecht's exile from Germany in the 1930s and 1940s. The parable follows Shen Tei, the kind-hearted, penniless prostitute, found by a trio of Gods to be the only good person in town. With her goodness impossibly tested by a world that rewards evil, she is forced to disguise herself as a savvy businessman male cousin, Shui Ta, to master the ruthlessness necessary to be a “good person.” With an original score from Sam Day Harmet drawing inspiration in equal parts from Hanns Eisler, Turkish psych music, and Portishead. Irondale Center, Brooklyn, NY, Winter 2020.
