Musical Theater Factory is thrilled to welcome you to our virtual salon hosted by MTF Maker Troy Anthony, and special guest Storm Thomas. During this salon we want to invite musical theater makers of excellence to present work that is dismantling oppressive ideologies towards collective liberation through powerful and joyful story in song.
During the virtual salon, we welcome artists from across the nation (and around the world) to perform their new and radical music theater work live from their homes, or to share a video of a short performance. Each artist will have about 5 minutes to share.
Storm Thomas is a playwright/drummer-pastor/maker and has written and composed musicals: Notes on the Past, Ancient Future, and Be Like Bone. Storm has been everything from a Joker with Theater of the Oppressed NYC to a performer at the 2017 Obie Awards. In classes like Black Musical Theater, Music for Performance, and New Musical Theater Lab Storm’s teaching focus is on generating new material (Uarts and Playwrights/NYU). Storm has an MFA from Sarah Lawrence and is currently pursuing a degree in engineering at City Tech. Performances include Skin of our Teeth (TFANA), Futurity (Soho Rep/ Ars Nova) and Lexus Verses and Flow Season 3 Episode 1 feat. Jill Scott.
We ask that everyone takes special care in uplifting and supporting each other. This is inclusive of only offering criticism when it is asked for and being respectful to gender identities. We seek to dismantle oppressive ideologies towards collective liberation – by participating, you agree to respect one another. In the event of unintentional harm, we support active engagement in harm reduction.
You do not have to share in order to attend. Please register to share or to participate as a supportive audience member. We can’t wait to see you there!
Please Note: “I Want to Share” tickets will close at 8pm on the Wednesday prior to the event, and “I Want to Watch” tickets will close at 6pm on the evening of the event.
