"The Mother: A Cantata for Ferguson" interweaves Brecht/Eisler’s revolutionary cantata with new texts about the shooting of Michael Brown and protests in Ferguson, MO. Following the performance, a roundtable panel will discuss the political power of performance and how we might look back to Brecht and Eisler’s works today.
