Ben Katchor and Mark Mulcahy: The Imaginary War Crimes Tribunal
Thursday, May 15, 2014 at 7:30pm
Target Free Thursdays
David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center, Frieda and Roy Furman Stage
Cartoonist and storyteller Ben Katchor (Julius Knipl, The Jew of New York) partners with composer and singer Mark Mulcahy (Management, The Crush) to create two, one-act operas: Memorial City, in which an East coast urban center is overwhelmed by a mania for memorial commemoration; and The Imaginary War Crimes Tribunal (world premiere), which tells the story of a compulsive video game player and the thrill of "victimless" violence.
Commissioned by Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts for Target Free Thursdays.
