September 23, 2005 — September 24, 2005
18 Wooster Street, New York

The Citizens Band will premiere their new large-scale performance, The Trepanning Opera, at Deitch Projects 18 Wooster Street location. The doors will open at 9pm, showtime at 9:30 pm. Taking its stylistic cues from the general time period of 1888 to 1928, the group will tackle the subjects of medicine and health. Infused with humor and spiked with political awareness, the group will present a selection of songs that reflects on lovesickness, the field of medicine and health care as well as the wonders and horrors of the human body. Imagine, if you will, an assembly of doctors, nurses and patients who resemble refugees from a lost silent movie. They sing, they dance, they hang from the sky, they contort and employ an atypical theatrical flair to mesmerize, seduce, enlighten and generally entertain.

A special thank you to MAC Cosmetics.
