An operatic response to the surge in anti-Asian hate crimes, Fractured Mosaics explores the kaleidoscope of cultures and politics of the 20 different ethnic groups that are encompassed under the insufficient umbrella term of “Asian American.” In this live digital opera, five composer-librettist teams create operatic vignettes of Asian Americans establishing themselves in the United States.
Asian Americans are not a monolith
Underlying the theme of Fractured Mosaics is that even the term “Asian American” is a social and political construct, completely missing the diversity of cultures and politics of the 20 different ethnic groups that are gathered under that umbrella — groups that are geographically spread over more than half the landmass of the Earth. Fractured Mosaics is White Snake Projects’ latest live virtual opera, created using the software plug-in Tutti Remote which was developed by White Snake Projects to make live, synchronous performances from remote locations possible.
