Try Me - Opening Night

DB Project presents Try Me, a dramatic interpretation of Libby Larsen’s “Try Me, Good King,” and the world premiere of A Lily Among Thorns, an operatic combination and reordering of John La Montaine’s song cycles “Songs of the Rose of Sharon” and “Fragments from the Song of Songs”. This production highlights and celebrates the universality of women finding solidarity and strength by taking back their narrative. Each musical cycle portrays how females throughout history have and are currently being marginalized. In these performances, DB Project will collaborate with a variety of local artists to combine music, poetry, dance, and spoken monologue. By weaving together different artistic mediums, DB Project hopes to create an accessible platform for audiences to absorb these stories. These works​ ​remain​ ​especially pertinent today because of our social climate and critical issues such as discrimination, sexuality, race, and gender, and it is becoming increasingly important for artists to present works that relate to current issues and events.

To co-opt the sentiment of Anne Boleyn, “Go ahead and try us, we dare you.”

Enticement: A Collaboration with Pip & Pop and BreckCreate

Enticement: A Collaboration with Pip & Pop and BreckCreate

For our final pop-up event during our residency in Breckenridge, we will be collaborating with BreckCreate and Australian artist Tanya Schultz who works as Pip & Pop.

DB Project’s inspiration for this event is the Nordic culture of Breckenridge, the mysticism of the mountains and the fleeting nature of paradise. We will be performing Grieg’s Haugtussa, Op. 67 in the Pip & Pop installation to further emphasize Tanya Schultz’s work that is often ephemeral, meticulously constructed and highly detailed to embrace notions of abundance, utopian dreams, and fleeting pleasure. She is fascinated with ideas of paradise and wish-fulfillment described in folk tales, mythologies and cinema.

Pip & Pop creates immersive installations and artworks from an eclectic range of materials including sugar, glitter, candy, plastic flowers, everyday craft materials and all sorts of objects she finds on her travels. Her practice embodies both independent and collaborative processes across varying disciplines including installation, painting, wall-works and sculpture. 

This event is free and open to the public.
