LOUD! (Living Opera, Understanding Diversity) is designed to connect communities near and far through discussions and performances via a focus on diverse cross-sections – with a particular focus on the BIPOC community, showcasing arts and culture in the Southwest, and highlighting stories that are focused on music and grounded in their sometimes-surprising connections to the world of opera.
This episode includes a performance by vocalist Mattea, an interview with Choreographer and Director of the Safos Dance Theatre, Yvonne Montoya, and a closing performance by EPIK Dance Company, a Phoenix-based hip-hop fusion dance company, featuring Lady Caress.
