September 27, 2012 · Print This Article
Shara has written the music for The Kings of Macedonia, a play by Andrew Ondrejcak. The compositions include brass quartet (featuring the amazing CJ Camerieri of yMusic), drums (the amazing Ted Poor) & choir (the amazing Khorikos). Shara will also be acting & singing in the role of The Whore. Other special guests include singer Helga Davis (Einstein on the Beach) and Tunde Adebimpe (TV on the Radio).
The play will be presented at The Prelude Festival in New York on October 4th at 8pm. It’s a FREE show!
Conceived as a modern telling of “The Canterbury Tales,” the “Kings of Macedonia” is a collection of moments from everyday life, in which ten characters search for meaning while en route to destinations they cannot quite pinpoint. Individually, they reflect on their own aptitude for inciting meaning within their lives and the lives of others; collectively, they look to the impulses within (and the vast unknown above) in the search for something, anything, to hold onto.
