Composer, Du Yun’s stunning opera, Angel’s Bone sheds light on the often overlooked human trafficking issues in developed countries. Du Yun has amplified the underrepresented voices of human trafficking victims into a sophisticated miscellany of opera, chamber music, cabaret, punk and electronics. Apart from this searing and provocative opera, Du Yun also initiated a multi-year Future Tradition project to enhance public understanding of cross region cultures, and deep collaborations for new modes of traditions.
Established in New York, Beth Morrison of Beth Morrison Projects (BMP) supports the creation of indie opera and new music productions of contemporary composers and their multi-media collaborators. BMP encourages cutting-edge musical expressions and risk-taking artists like Du Yun. Du Yun and Beth Morrison, individuals who are active in the indie opera and new music scene, will discuss their work with moderator, Joanna C. Lee.
