HOW THE LIGHT GETS IN is a new concert presentation of micro-musicals – 30 minutes or less – commissioned by NYMF (with support from The ASCAP Foundation and Jan Brandt), in an effort to create more space for arts-based civic engagement in our Festival. Directed by Jonathan McCrory (National Black Theatre) and co-curated by Zhailon Levingston (Broadway Advocacy Coalition), participating artists include: Ty Defoe and Tidtaya Sinutoke with WATER IS LIFE; Lelund Durond Thompson and Jason Michael Webb with ILATHI: THE GIFT; and Ryan Scott Oliver and Nessie Nankivell with OTHERBODY. A moderated conversation with artists discussing the process of developing their micro-musicals will follow the concert.
Performers for How The Light Gets In include Sean Green Jr., Angel Harrison, Joan Allison Henry, Lia Holman, David Hughey, Brene Jackson*, Tamara Jade, Zonya Love*, Miles Josephson, Kenneth Lopez, Abena Mensah-Bonsu, Bethany Perkins, Jessica Ranville, Ali Stroker, Carlton Taylor Jr., and Jada Temple.
