A Voice of One's Own
A music drama for four voices and electronics with music by Amanda Martikainen and libretto by Shannon Murray and Elizabeth Doss. Inspired by the writings of Virginia Woolf and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, the narrative follows Aurora and her estranged mother, Maria, in their struggles against a world that seeks to erase them and their dreams.
Featuring music, dance, and film, the multi-disciplinary project, Voces Fantasmas is a haunting and visceral tribute to immigrants detained by ICE. The program is inspired by composer J.E. Hernández's experiences in the Houston ICE detention facility – where he spent 60 days detained from August 4th to October 3rd, 2013 – and honors those who have since become no more than phantom voices in his memory.
