On May 13, vocalist, dancer and interdisciplinary artist Migguel Anggelo and his longtime Musical Director and collaborator Jaime Lozano will premiere an online glimpse into the development of their ambitious new project, English with an Accent (EWaA). EWaA will ultimately take the tripartite form of a dance-theater live performance, a series of short online films and a musical album, but for this early and intimate show-and-tell, the artists will publicly premiere a fully-produced video presentation of the work, including several first drafts of the films and a number of final drafts of songs that were created during Anggelo’s recent residency as a New York Presenters Consortium artist. The performance will feature Joel Mateo on drums and percussion. This free streaming performance is a part of Greenwich House Music School’s Uncharted music series, presented in conjunction with Joe’s Pub. English with an Accent will air on Joe’s Pub’s YouTube channel, then remain available on demand through the following weekend.
The story of EWaA centers around a newly emigrated caterpillar in New York City, unsure of which direction his life is taking. Is he really a caterpillar, or just a lowly worm? Will he become the butterfly of his dreams? And what does it mean to become a butterfly in the first place? This work explores the promise of the American Dream through themes of freedom, safety and self-worth. Anggelo and Lozano will provide an insightful and engaging evening of the work in progress with a look under the hood at the music, visuals and artistic ingenuity devoted to building English with an Accent thus far.
