Audition for Aporia!

The Gospel Truth

Miranda Hoyt-Disick ’19 writes in:

We’re back!
If you liked the staged-reading, you’ll love our fully-fledged production of this original student-written musical advised by none other than Lin Manuel Miranda 02’s writing partner, Professor Quiara Hudes.

Synopsis: In ancient Greece, The wise-talking Protaginus travels to Athens to trick wealthy patrons out of their money, only to fall for the wrong girl and become embroiled in an epic (rap) battle of rhetoric in the process. This wry, musical throwback explores competing theories of philosophy that we still debate in 2016, indulging in a kickline or two along the way.

What you should bring: 16 bars of your favorite song and a monologue (or joke, or just really funny story) to help us get to know you.

Callbacks will be Sunday, January 28th, same time, same place.

Written by: Zach Ezer ’17 and Eli Maskin ’17
Directed by: Miranda Hoyt-Disick

Associate Professor of Music Paula Matthusen and Visiting Scholar in Music Terri Hron explore and remember space through magnetic, transferred traces. Looping backwards and forwards, distorting time, they improvise on a series of recordings originally made in a dark Roman aqueduct.
