I'm still recovering from Brooklyn Babylon but I wanted to extend my deepest thanks to everyone who came to see the show, and everyone who's written me to express your thoughts on the piece. The response has been truly amazing -- it's so invigorating to discover that this thing that we all wokred incredibly hard to create ended up being meaningful to others.
Here are two three additional reviews:
"This weekend, the Brooklyn Academy of Music presented a new work of originality, power, and beauty that left an audience slack-jawed. Brooklyn Babylon is a collaboration between the graphic novelist Danijel Zezelj and composer Darcy James Argue, and it is destined to be considered a classic of the evolving genre of multimedia performance."
"The end result is an impressive narrative that offers visual splendor and musical majesty of the type not often experienced, a tour de force."
"The 4-night run of Brooklyn Babylon at Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Harvey Theatre this past week combined imaginative music and visual art to create a compelling theatrical performance that spoke directly to profound social questions of today. The innovative sounds of Darcy James Argue’s Secret Society and the provocative animation and live painting by Danijel Zezelj were a treat in their own right, and the performance was a riveting hour-long journey left you thinking, seeing, and hearing differently."
