Nisenan Rock Opera ‘Something Inside Is Broken’ Tour on September 22by Frances MadesonSep 16, 2016Nisenan Rock Opera ‘Something Inside Is Broken’ to Commence Three-State Tour on September 22.It’s not a comedy, but Jack Kohler, director and writer of this Nisenan-language rock opera about to tour the West promises moments of hilarity. Hilarity “and the right balance of truth and honesty, satire and optimism.”
Something Inside Is Broken’s central story line is the Nisenan people’s encounter with Johann Sutter in the pre-Gold Rush years. It’s told largely through the voices of female characters who bore the brunt of Sutter’s style of servitude, which included sexual exploitation. The show got up on its feet last spring with performances at Sacramento area colleges—Sierra College and Sacramento State. It’s portrayal of local history was made richer by the local families who came to see their own stories portrayed in rock ballads, choruses and spirited raps, accompanied by a band playing violins, viola, cello, Native flute and trumpet, electric and acoustic guitar, piano, bass and percussion. https://newsmaven.io/indiancountrytoday/archive/nisenan-rock-opera-something-inside-is-broken-tour-on-september-22-DPagG-YeVEWbO1Mdwc73dg/
