Run AMOC! Festival
2017/18
Run AMOC! Festival
A.R.T. presents the inaugural Run AMOC! Festival, performed by the new American Modern Opera Company (AMOC). The festival features a collaboration between an internationally acclaimed dancer and award-winning violinist; duets staged as duels between three pairs of performers; and a musical meditation on the lives of black men and women lost as a result of police brutality over the past year. These newly developed pieces by AMOC artists will be performed at venues around Harvard Square.
 
AMOC is a brand-new opera company—comprised of a diverse collective of singers, dancers, instrumentalists, a director, and a composer—that aims to expand the definition and reach of opera in our world through collaborative, interdisciplinary work. Composer/conductor/pianist/poet Matthew Aucoin (Crossing, Harvard '12), and director/choreographer/dancer Zack Winokur serve as Artistic Directors; Jennifer Chen (Harvard '11) is the new company’s Managing Director. The three leaders all hail from Greater Boston.
 
"We're thrilled to give A.R.T. audiences the opportunity to get to know AMOC just as this exciting new collective bursts onto the scene," says A.R.T. Artistic Director Diane Paulus. "We've experienced the passion and virtuosity of many of these visionary artists firsthand, and I have no doubt that they will redefine opera through their new model of interdisciplinary collaboration."
 
"A.R.T.'s fabulous creative team and I have already shared the epic journey of bringing an opera from conception to production so it feels natural for my newest endeavor to make its public debut at the A.R.T.," says AMOC Artistic Director Matthew Aucoin. "Our company of young, pioneering artists wants to change the way opera is produced and to expand the art form's definition and reach. By supporting our launch, A.R.T. continues its great tradition of nurturing new talent and giving it a platform upon which to run amok (or AMOC)."
