MOBRO by John Ellis and Andy Bragen

@Jazz Gallery (NYC) – 7 décembre 2011



John Ellis & Andy Bragen’s MOBRO [Live @ The Jazz Gallery, NY - 12/10/2011] (1 of 5)

The 90-minute through-composed piece, for nine musicians and five singers, was created at the Gallery in April 2011. Mobro was inspired by the intriguing 1987 journey of a garbage barge of the same name that became a national news headline, sparking intense interest in, and action on, a multitude of environmental issues. Ellis and Bragen composed, workshopped, rehearsed and performed Mobro at the Jazz Gallery in April 2011 (to sold out audiences), making use of the space on a prolonged basis, not only for the performance, but also as an integral part of their creative process. The work was commissioned by The Jazz Gallery as part of its 2011 Residency Commissioning Series, which was supported by grants from the Jerome Foundation and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. It was developed with additional support from The Playwrights’ Center, Minneapolis, MN in partnership with the Network for Ensemble Theaters.
