Black Moon (La Lune Noir) is an interdisciplinary/multimedia cabaret operetta based on Arnold Schoenberg’s melodrama “Pierrot Lunaire,” rewritten from an African-American male perspective and musically re-imagined through popular genres such as Afrobeat and house, deconstructing classical and contemporary forms to infuse the work with emotional power. The work is an electric experience visually and sonically.
