Iowa Remembers with Paws & Effect

Iowa Remembers will be hosting a Combat Paper workshop in April, 2016.  Our workshop will be a collaboration with Paws & Effect, which is a non-profit organization that trains and places service dogs with wounded veterans.  The workshop is being hosted by the Urbandale Fire Department.  Our effort will incorporate a paper-making workshop with families of fallen service members, service dog recipients and civilians.  Our goal is to begin to bridge the cultural gaps among civilians and those who serve in uniform.  We look forward to honoring these stories with honesty and integrity, and for continuing to find new and compelling ways to remember and celebrate our fellow Iowans.

As a component of the public programming in conjunction with the group exhibition "In Uniform" there will be a public talk and hand papermaking workshop on February 11-12th, 2016. "The clothes we wear prepare us for the circumstances we encounter, identify our roles and position in life, and bear witness to the things we have seen and done. Recognizing the significant weight that clothing can carry, the artists in this exhibition all utilize military uniforms in their artmaking process to tell the stories of American military veterans and explore the experience of war individually, collectively and environmentally." -Mariposa County Arts Council

My Lai, World Premiere of Staged Opera

My Lai, World Premiere of Staged Opera

WORLD PREMIERE OF STAGED OPERA
Jonathan Berger, composer
Kronos Quartet, Rinde Eckert, Vân-Ánh Vanessa Võ, performers
Rinde Eckert, director
Harriet Scott Chessman, librettist
Brian H. Scott, lighting designer

My Lai, an operatic monodrama for voice, traditional Vietnamese instruments, and string quartet, is composed by San Francisco Bay Area composer and Stanford University Professor of Music Jonathan Berger. An artistic portrayal of and response to the infamous 1968 civilian massacre by U.S. troops during the Vietnam War, My Lai approaches the story from U.S. Army helicopter pilot Hugh Thompson’s perspective. In lieu of a linear narrative, the story emerges in fragments as the aging and infirm Thompson reflects on the war and on decades of being maligned as unpatriotic and traitorous for attempting to stop the slaughter. 

Dramatizing Thompson’s experience will engage audiences in the human story at the center of this historic event. My Lai will be more than just a reflection on a particular day, war, or time: it will challenge audiences to consider the consequences of human action and inaction, on the scale of society as a whole and of a single human life. The relationship of the traditional Vietnamese percussion instruments, many of which are made from spent shell casings, to the Vietnam War and the intermixing of the traditional instruments with string quartet, voice, and recorded sounds will produce a multi-layered musical experience in keeping with the complexity of the opera’s narrative.

The world premiere of My Lai is made possible with support from the Harris Theater for Music and Dance, the Laura and Ricardo Rosenkranz Artistic Innovation Fund, and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Gerbode-Hewlett Foundations 2013 Music Commissioning Awards Initiative, and the National Endowment for the Arts, Commissioning Partners.
