Nautilus Rough Cuts takes the stage tonight and tomorrow
This week, Nautilus Music Theater continues its 19th season of Rough Cuts, the new music series featuring explorations in musical theater. Tonight's event take place at Nautilus Studio in Lowertown St. Paul, and tomorrow's will be in the choir room of Augsburg College's Music Building.
Nautilus Music-Theater trains a new generation of artists
Ben Krywosz, artistic director for Nautilus, says Dargel's Sexual Side Effects includes "four short, quirky songs that each explore one particular aspect of sexual interaction." Of the songs in the series, "there's a wonderful precision about them. The music is a lot of fun," Krywosz says. The song cycle was originally written for a Baroque soprano, but Nautilus will be presenting it in four voices. Dargel also worked with Nautilus a few years ago, when he performed a piece called Removable Parts, about a subculture of people who voluntarily get their body parts removed.
In January, Nautilus will preview I am Anne Frank at the Southern Theater with actors Vanessa Gamble and Joel Liestman, stage direction by Ben Krywosz, and music direction by Jill Dawe. Also look out for the February Rough Cuts series, where the organization will be collaborating with choreographer Penelope Freeh as part of the University of Minnesota Creative Collaborations program.
