Eve Apart Debuts At Chattanooga Theatre Centre Sept. 4-7

Monday, August 25, 2014

The new musical/theatrical production Eve Apart will play Sept. 4-7 at the Chattanooga Theatre Centre. Afterward, it travels to Pittsburgh for a second set of performances there.  

Tom Hinck has written the music that accompanies a libretto written by Kip Soteres, and the musical forces include nine singers and six instrumentalists.

Review for Eve Apart:

Eve Apart is a new multi-media musical production that plumbs the pre-lapsarian era of Lilith and Lucifer, reimagining the Genesis story in ways that will forever change how you think about it. This thoroughly contemporary and multi-genre event viscerally combines those musical elements with sublime performances and multimedia components such as video, choreography and visually-arresting set pieces.   

Each act more deeply excavates layered and primal themes of feminine power, infusing them with a stark and modern relevance. This show explores figures of mythical stature: Adam and Eve, Lilith, the Serpent of the Garden of Eden, and the mysterious "Nameless Second Eve." 

Drawing from ancient mythology, mainly Kabbalist mysticism and Midrashic literature, this operatic piece of musical theater explores gender identity, myth, religious paradigm, and human nature.  

The creative powers of composer Mr. Hinck are on full display as he masterfully interweaves influences from prehistoric rhythms to lush neo-impressionism to high-tech, futuristic tones and ambient electronica.

Eve Apart will play Sept. 4-6 with a 7:30 p.m. pre-show talk and 8 p.m. performance and Sept. 7 with a 2 p.m. pre-show talk and 2:30 p.m. performance in the Circle Theater at the Chattanooga Theatre Centre.

If you really care about the kids of Hamilton County’s most distressed schools, then you’ll take help where you can get it. The question on your mind isn’t which political label someone wears. Anyone who shifts attention away from the critical issues facing public education and toward political labels is not really committed to public education. Their support for equitable, quality ...

Just eight short days ago, Hamilton County Commissioner Tim Boyd called a study on Hamilton’s County’s pseudo ‘socioeconomic desegregation’ farce as “the most far left, liberal document I have ever read.
