{Julia Rosenblatt}

Flipside premiered in Hartford in 2011 and I am currently working on Gross Domestic Product, a full-length music-theater work that explores motherhood in the “post-feminist” era and its relationship to our country’s economy.

 

I am an artist, mother, writer, educator, activist and creative partner in HartBeat Ensemble. The COA artist fellowship will allow me to meld these roles as I explore motherhood as a civic issue and hone my craft as a playwright. The creation of the work is a prime opportunity for me to deepen my research approach and will allow me to weave global conversations into local dialogue in an authentic way.
