BRIC Presents Work-In-Progress Performances of WOW by Joe Diebes Christian Hawkey and David Levine

BRIC continues its inaugural season in the newly opened BRIC Arts | Media House (BRIC House), the organization’s new 40,000-square-foot multi-disciplinary facility in Downtown Brooklyn, and presents work-in-progress performances of "WOW," an experimental opera by Fort Greene residents Joe Diebes, Christian Hawkey and David Levine developed, in part, during a BRIC House Fireworks Residency. But Milli Vanilli's troubled history is not only tragically operatic in terms of its story; it is also a tragedy of the digital. WOW challenges the endless repetition of the CD-skip moment that led to the destruction of the pop duo's career with a real-time opera production environment in which the score, libretto, and staging intersect differently during each performance. Work-in-progress performances of "WOW" will take place January 23–25 and January 30–February 1 at BRIC House. Tickets are $15 advance/$18 at the door
