Directed by Zack Winokur
Featuring Davóne Tines and Michael Schachter
Were You There is a musical mediation about moving from darkness to light and finding spiritual communion in an abstract memorial to the past year's victims of police brutality. Bass-baritone Davóne Tines (Crossing, Harvard '09), accompanied by guest pianist Michael Schachter (Harvard '09), performs a set of songs ranging from Spirituals to a new piece composed by Matthew Aucoin (Crossing, Artist-in-Residence at Los Angeles Opera, Harvard '12). Schachter, Tines, and Winokur are currently developing a new music-theater piece with A.R.T. inspired by Langston Hughes' poem, "The Black Clown."
