The Grey Land, Joe Phillips' Numinious Ensemble

  • Roulette 509 Atlantic Ave. Brooklyn, NY USA (map)

The Grey Land is a monoopera, which through the lens of one Black mother's experiences navigating American society with her son, explores universal themes of humanity and identity through the intractable triumvirate of race, class, and power. The Grey Land ruminates and comments more specifically on the larger longstanding systemic societal, economic, and cultural issues the recent spate of police shootings and protests have brought to the wider public consciousness. The Grey Land is made possible by a grant from the American Composers Forum with funds provided by the Jerome Foundation and, in addition, is also supported by New Music USA. The composition will eventually be recorded for New Amsterdam Records after the premiere.
