A.R.T. Runs AMOC! in Cambridge

{ Friday, December 15th – Monday, December 18th } American Repertory Theater presents the first Run AMOC! Festival in Cambridge.

The arts will run amok with shrewd political commentary when the American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) at Harvard University brings the inaugural Run AMOC! Festival to Cambridge, Massachusetts this December. Performed by the new American Modern Opera Company (AMOC), the festival features a collaboration between an internationally acclaimed dancer and award-winning violinist; duets staged as duels between three pairs of performers; and a musical meditation on the lives of black men and women lost as a result of police brutality over the past year. These newly developed pieces by AMOC artists will be performed at three A.R.T. venues around Harvard Square: Harvard Dance CenterOBERON, and the Loeb Drama Center. Discounts are available when purchasing tickets to multiple events.

“We’re thrilled to give A.R.T. audiences the opportunity to get to know AMOC just as this exciting new collective bursts onto the scene,” says A.R.T. Artistic Director Diane Paulus. “We’ve experienced the passion and virtuosity of many of these visionary artists firsthand, and I have no doubt that they will redefine opera through their new model of interdisciplinary collaboration.” Adds AMOC Artistic Director Matthew Aucoin, “Our company of young, pioneering artists wants to change the way opera is produced and to expand the art form’s definition and reach. By supporting our launch, A.R.T. continues its great tradition of nurturing new talent and giving it a platform upon which to run amok (or AMOC).”
