Anthony Braxton's Trillium J (The Non-Unconfessionables),
A semi-staged, multi-media concert performance of Braxton’s latest four-act opera, featuring a cast of 12 vocalists, 12 instrumental soloists, and full orchestra.
"I fail to describe my feelings having never experienced anything like this before. Perhaps one could compare Trillium J to Richard Foreman’s plays in the way it captures the absurd, the unexpectedness and ambiguity of the contemporary world. Weave in the voices of 12 vocalists and the sounds of 12 instrumental soloists with full orchestra, excellent acting, pseudo-philosophical digressions, visual projections, young skipping-rope Jazzy Jumpers and two of New York’s best contemporary dance improvisers Rachel Bernsen and Melanie Maar, and you get the mix."
