eavesdropping receives its world premiere at the Alliance Theatre Black Box, Dec 4, 2014

Listen to a preview

eavesdropping, an experimental theatrical song cycle by Atlanta composer John Cerreta, is having it’s world premiere this December at the Woodruff Arts Center. It is a new production of the Performance Ensemble program at Alliance Theatre Education, dedicated to providing excellent experiences and training opportunities for adult artists, professional, non-professional, and emerging, while also providing creative support for the new works of Atlanta artists and beyond.

Cerreta’s musical offering is sourced in the repetitive, mundane, perhaps banal conversations overheard in the city’s coffee houses over a certain stretch of years. Employing music that is at once completely original, but also reminding of the work of Radiohead, Laurie Anderson, The Cure, Phillip Glass, R.E.M., and possibly Nirvana, Eavesdropping creates meaning, character, and story out of what seems unrelated and unconnected, and reveals the unifying designs and desires of human lives in motion and rest.
