Fifty Days at Iliam – This Weekend!

This weekend, don’t miss the Philly Fringe production of “Fifty Days at Iliam.”

What is “Fifty Days at Iliam,” you ask?
It is a Philly-based theatre ensemble, devising a play exploring the Trojan War/inspired by Cy Twombly’s “Fifty Days at Iliam.” It is led by my sister, Hannah Van Sciver.

It just opened, last night, to rave reviews. Tickets are sold out, but you can still see the show for $5/each – standing room, at the door!
“Fifty Days at Iliam” incorporates my original music, and the production features a wonderful cast and crew. I am thrilled to have been involved.

Video: OK Composer @ CalArts

You can now watch Sunday’s OK Composer performance!

We performed a piece I composed for choir called “Titania’s Lullaby.” Its lyrics come from a scene in A Midsummer Night’s Dream in which fairies lull their queen Titania to sleep with a song. It was originally commissioned for an experimental theatre company’s production of the play.

Oberon, Titania, Puck, and fairies. Painting by William Blake, 1796.

Special thanks to CalArts/Nicolas Bejarano for the video; to Edward Park and Justin Scheid for curating and running the concert; and to the ensemble: Amy Golden, Diana Cioffari, Drew Corey, Gina Kodel, Edward Park, Julian Karahalios, and Luke Morin.
And thank you to everyone who tuned into watch OK Composer on Sunday!
