Led by world-renowned poet and author Jane Yolen, the cast of The Infinite Dark weaves poetry and music into a performance shot with bright threads from Scots, Irish, and European folklore. Listeners are both entranced and disturbed by Yolen’s tales of the creatures of fire, water, air and earth!
Audience member Gary Bernhard wrote to the Daily Hampshire Gazette after the show’s 2016 debut in Amherst MA:
The harmonies were gorgeous, the musicianship extraordinary, and Jane Yolen’s poetry was thought-provoking and often very funny. Throughout the evening, the performers seemed to be having as much fun as the audience did. This was one of the most creative, engaging performances I have seen in a long time!”
In addition to Jane, cast members are 3 ravens trio Max Cohen, Lui Collins and Donna Hébert, with singer and bassist Molly Hebert-Wilson. Read the band blog in the sidebar at right to learn how this project was conjured from Jane’s verses.
