why watch american utopia
David Bryne's is one of the greatest contemporary artists in the world and has created music for TV, Movies and collaborated with several musicians. His work has accorded him awards ranging from Academy Awards, Grammys and Drama Desk Awards, and even inclusion in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He is best known as the lead singer and guitarist of new wave band 'Talking Heads.'
American Utopia, the Broadway show, draws from his 2018 music album of the same name. It is his first solo album release in over 14 years and was well-received amongst fans and critics. The show is a theatrical concert experience wherein he brings along eleven other talented artists to create an audio-visual sensory experience that is nothing like you have seen in recent times!
The theme of the album and the show is as the title suggests, the search for an American Utopia. In his own words, “These songs don't describe this imaginary and possibly impossible place, but rather they attempt to describe the world we live in now—and that world, when we look at it, as we live in it, as it impacts us—immediately commands us to ask ourselves- is there another way? A better way? A different way?”
The Broadway show David Bryne's American Utopia is an ambitious manifestation of an artist's desire. David Bryne envisioned a live performance where songs from his latest album 'American Utopia' could be performed alongside his previous works. He was keen on creating a never-before-seen experience that would elevate the visual component of a music concert.
Thus, he created the American Utopia show along with choreographer Annie-B Parson who created movement on stage that infused energy into the performance. The show also involves live performance with some of the world's best percussionists and other musicians. The other 11 musicians include Jacquelene Acevedo, Gustavo Di Dalva, Daniel Freedman, Chris Giarmo, Tim Keiper, Tendayi Kuumba, Karl Mansfield, Mauro Refosco, Stephane San Juan, Angie Swan, and Bobby Wooten III.
