THE BURNING TRUTH PROJECT

SUMMER 2020

A collaboration between Twin Cities singers Andrina Brogden, Katia Cardenas, and Sarah Greer, with accompanist Kavyesh Kaviraj created in response to the current moment. Using stories and song to respond to the theme of “Burning Truth,” this 1.5 hour live in-person performance takes place in a Twin Cities backyard before a limited, socially-distant audience.

A video recording of the full performance premiered online on Sunday, August 23rd at 5pm, followed by a discussion with the artists, moderated by Pangea World Theater's Co-Artistic Director, Meena Natarajan.

Listen to some of the artists talk about the making of The Burning Truth Project with KBEM's Phil Nusbaum on PRX.

RSVP required for all attendees. Please wear masks, and maintain 6’ distance from all other patrons. Seating will be available on the lawn, we invited you to bring camp-chairs or blankets to sit on. The address of the event will be included in your confirmation email once you register. For the safety of our community, if you do not feel well, please stay home. 

As artists, we are used to processing through our creative work, and this pandemic has grossly limited our ability to respond and perform as we are used to. As the future of performing remains uncertain, we are grieving and also reeling in response to persistent injustice, the proliferation of hate, and our inability to dream beyond tomorrow. We have truths burning within us, waiting to be released.
