Somehow is a love song to ourselves, to those we know and those we have yet to meet. It is an exploration of intimacy and relationships, not only between the music and movement, but between performer and audience. Reflecting on new forms and spaces for music theatre to exist within, writer and dancer Krystal S. Lowe and composer Jasmin Kent Rodgman have created a work that draws on the theatre of opera, the emotion and expression of lieder and innateness of dance. Blurring the lines between onstage and onscreen, Somehow hopes to offer a redefined operatic experience that embodies how we live today and our connections with one another.
