The Kitchen presents Raúl De Nieves and Colin Self's The Fool, a chamber opera scored in four acts for chorus and string ensemble. The Fool is an allegorical journey drawing an ante-narrative around time, beauty, communion, and mortality. The Fool is the spirit in search of experience. The Fool is both the beginning and the end, neither and otherwise, betwixt and between. The Fool is a story. Starring Colin Self as the Old Woman, Raúl De Nieves as The Fool and the Dog, Alexandra Drewchin as the Child, and Mehron Abdollmohammadi as the Mother. Organized by Matthew Lyons.

February 9–11, 8pm
Tickets $15

Samuels Foundation, and Marta Heflin Foundation; and in part by public funds from New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. The Fool was developed over the course of 2014 as a part of Raúl De Nieves' year-long residency in ISSUE Project Room's Artist-in-Residence program which culminated in a premiere of the work at ISSUE as The Fool (Elation V), part of Colin Self's six-part Elation series.
