Just about 48 hours to go!! Got your tickets? All you last-minute folks can still head over to https://www.overtoneindustries.org/original_vision_2021 Tag a friend who should not miss this special event on Saturday May 29th from 7-8pm 🚢

For the Maiden Voyage of ORIGINAL VISION, we have made 3 films running about 15 minutes each, all wildly different from each other in types of music, visuals and content; "first look” scenes with themes as diverse as hysterics, birdsong, and pancakes.

In “Azure’s Hands“ by Livia Reiner and Lily Min Ren, the lead must explore the history and spectres that reside in her subconscious to find freedom. “Hysteria” by Molly Pease and Divya Maus boldly depicts how a set of heroines discover the external root cause of their motley emotions. Concluding the evening is “Untitled Aunt Jemima Opera” by Jason V. Barabba and June Carryl, a historical take on the Mammy figure and its dehumanizing effect.

Tickets are available to the online premiere event on a donation basis, starting at $10. For a minimum $100 sponsorship donation, a VIP ticket will include a post-show meet-and-greet with the artists via Zoom.

Inspired by the song Katy Cruel which the historical figure wrote about her own life, Katy Cruel illuminates the complex culture of a rag-tag group of revolutionary soldiers and the women Camp Followers that travel with them. In these characters we see the beginnings of America: the farmer, the religious fanatic, the u***d mother, the African American who has escaped slavery, and the shadow of English aristocracy looming over them all.
