Members of the Chattanooga Symphony, UTC faculty, Chattanooga Dance Projects, Theater for the New South’s director Blake Harris, and filmmaker Megan Hollenbeck join forces to bring Tim Hinck’s work to life on stage. This riveting production blends a live quintet of woodwinds, strings, and electric guitar, with dancers and multimedia projections. Employing Brechtian theater, performance art, and experimental music, Rebecca Furiosa explores the power of religion in the cultural landscape of the United States. The ferocity of our religious fervor finds personification in the character Rebecca. This snapshot of her coming-of-age mirrors, in many ways, the coming-of-age of the American nation. The nightly performances of this 50-minute production will be followed by a panel Q&A with the composer, members of the production team, and performers.
