Each year, Juventas' Project Fusion presents collaborative projects, combining new music with everything from live painting and puppets to politics and robots. This year, Music in Flight brings composers and instrumentalists together with circus artists to create an unparalleled audio-visual experience. Aerialists, acrobats, and jugglers join Juventas musicians to create new experiences in a cabaret setting, featuring the music of Oliver Caplan, Dan Shore, Nate Tucker, and more.
Dedicated to creating relevant art with critical lenses for today's society, Juventas will perform the Boston premiere of Caplan's You Are Not Alone,whichis dedicated to the patients and survivors of breast cancer. Furthermore, excerpts from Shore's opera, Freedom Ride, explores and celebrates the lives of the brave volunteers who risked their lives to desegregate travel in 1961.
