ABOUT THE PROJECT
The first Burning Truth Project — a cabaret inspired evening of story and song — was originally presented in the summer of 2020 with a focus on responding to the murder of George Floyd and the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. This summer, we are re-mounting Burning Truth Project to continue this musical conversation and response to the events and circumstances in our city and around the globe. We still have truths burning within us, waiting to be expressed.
Created and performed by vocalists Andrina Brogden, Katia Cardenas and Sarah M. Greer. Accompaniment by Theo Brown on keys, Miguel Hurtado on drums, and Nii Mensah on bass. Original artwork by Jordan M. Hamilton.
Many thanks to our collaborators: Pangea World Theater (whose Another World is Possible series sparked the first iteration of BPT), Eastside Freedom Library, and Walker|West Music Academy.
This activity is funded, in part, by an appropriation from the MN State Legislature with money from the State’s general fund.
