The New World Symphony: Dvorak in America

Marionette theater.

"The New World Symphony: Dvorak in America" explores the influence of African-American and Native American music upon the work of the famed Czech composer Antonin Dvorak and consequently on music development worldwide. Written and directed by Vit Horejs, music by Antonin Dvorak and saxophonist James Brandon Lewis. Performed by Luke Stewart - Bass, Warren Trae Crudup III - Drums, and Czechoslovak American Marionette Theatre (‘CAMT’).

The CAMT utilizes century-old Czech marionettes and modern puppets created by contemporary Czech master craftsmen. In performance, manipulator and puppet are equal acting partners, unified as characters and reciprocal alter egos. The company members will create new puppets from musical instrument parts, found objects and traditional elements to act alongside CAMT’s collection of antique Czech marionettes. The characters will be portrayed by marionettes, actors and musicians who will all be visible onstage.
