Steel Hammer March 2014

The project was born in a conversation between the composer Julia Wolfe, one of the three composers of Bang on a Can , and Anne Bogart.  Julia had written an oratorio entitled Steel Hammer and we began to discuss collaboration between SITI Company and the Bang on a Can All Stars towards a music theater piece that would transform Julia’s oratorio into a dramatic music-theater piece.
