A co-production of Moveable Beast Collective and Volcano Theatre

Combining a new libretto with Joplin’s ground-breaking music, Volcano is creating a ReBoot of an opera unlike any other. Found under a tree by an ex-slave named Monisha, Treemonisha grows into a woman who will change the course of her post Civil War community. This is Scott Joplin’s main character in his almost unknown 1911 opera, Treemonisha: the first black opera composed in North America to survive to the present day.



Working with Nunavut-based Inuit artists Tatanniq Lucie Idlout and Carol Saqpinaq Kunnuk, Volcano and Igloolik-based 662 OVA are developing a translation and produciton of  Samuel Beckett’s masterpiece Waiting for Godot in Inuktitut.
