May – July in Brooklyn, NY
PERFORMING – SATURDAY, MAY 18th, 6:30pm-9pm
I am sub Music Director for this Theater of War production which sheds new light on modern events through the lens of Greek classic plays. The gospel-style score was composed by St. Louis native Phil Woodmore. “Antigone in Ferguson” is even more about social activism event than it is a theatre event. There are no tickets, it is FREE for all. And you can take part in the post-show discussion on how we can reduce violence on our streets and improve relationships between community and police. Contact me at anna at annadagmar dot com if you would like to bring a group of 8 or more, I can arrange VIP seats for you and also if needed your group will be provided transportation. They would like this to be accessible and affordable for all.
Each night different panelists come, and audience and cast alike can participate in the form. We talk about how the play of Antigone is relevant today, and the uplifting gospel music sends my soul soaring every night I’ve attended. I’ll be sitting in as pianist on numerous nights, beginning this Saturday, May 18th. Even if you can’t make that date, it’s not about me, so just go go go to this show. I can’t express enough how unique and special this feels to be a part of and I would love for all of my friends and fans to see it. I think this event will lead to some amazing community engagement around our city and across our country.
Rancho la Puerta, Tecate, B.C., Mexico
