Fulcrum Point New Music Project brings you another multimedia feast for the senses featuring outrageous videos and a 7 piece funk band playing wild mashups of documentary films and provocative interviews. Dutch avant-pop artist Jacob TV’s punchy, social-political music videos, riffing on rap, machismo, and violence are the perfect foil to the suave, award-winning scores of Hong Kong filmmaker/pop-star Teddy Robin Kwan. Kwan’s theme songs will be sung by winners of the “Chicago’s Got Cantonese Talent” singing competition. The music of Kwan and Jacob TV are complemented by Valerie Coleman's work for video, flute, and percussion, "Hair, Cloth, and Thread," a six movement piece based on artwork by Sonya Clark exploring cultural themes of African American hair, the textile industry, history, and memory.

The Concert Program:

"Close Fight"

"I Was Like, Wow!"

"Grab it!"

By Jacob TV

"Hair, Cloth and Thread" by Valerie Coleman

Midwest Premiere, featuring Jennie Oh Brown, flute; Peter Ferry, percussion

"City of Fire"

"Cops and Robbers"

"Til Death Do We Scare"

By Teddy Robin Kwan

Andina is the 80-year-old opera written by immigrant composer Eustasio Rosales. The score was never performed until Arlen Parsa, Rosales’ great-grandson, discovered the work and began researching composer’s story. Now he's determined to fulfill his family legacy and resurrect the opera, decades after it was first written.

When Arlen discovers his Colombian great-grandfather left behind a long lost opera that's never been performed, he knows what he has to do... He just doesn't know how to do it. Despite having zero of experience with opera, and not even speaking Spanish, he takes a leap of faith.

But after promising his entire family that the 80 year old Latin music will finally get a world premiere, is he in over his head?

The Way to Andina is a 70 minute humorous personal adventure documentary chronicles the journey from the moment Arlen sees the opera through rehearsals, history, a touching family backstory, and the eventual world premiere. This project incorporates music, video, and live opera performance.
