Brooklyn-based composer Felix Jarrar and London-based writer B.L. Foxley join forces to create a new kind of musical storytelling. Stardust explores the labyrinth of personal and racial identity, the perils of self-criticism, and the power of self-actualization in a dynamic, multi-layered music video production inspired by the worlds of Greek mythology, contemporary art, and fantasy. Each performance is followed by a live post-show discussion featuring a Special Guest Moderator of color in conversation with members of the creative team. 10% of ticket sales will be donated to racial justice organizations and LGBTQIA+ youth organizations.
