Professional Performance: Songs for a New World
It's about one moment. It's about hitting the wall and having to make a choice... or take a stand... or turn around and go back. These are the stories and characters of today, the Songs for a New World. The first musical from Tony Award winner, Jason Robert Brown (Parade, Bridges of Madison County), this moving collection of powerful songs examines life, love and the choices that we make.
Brown transports his audience from the deck of a 1492 Spanish sailing ship to a ledge, 57 stories above Fifth Avenue, to meet a startling array of characters that range from a young man who has determined that basketball is his ticket out of the ghetto to a woman whose dream of marrying rich nabs her the man of her dreams... and a soulless marriage.

Rosie Cumber, George Gehm, Meesha Turner, Yeukayi Ushe

A sociable night of performance for students, staff and the public. With an informal, friendly atmosphere, refreshments all evening, and acts introduced by student comperes and interwoven with DJs, Arts@Artaud seeks to represent the best new artistic work at Brunel, both by students and staff - music, film, creative writing, poetry, drama and dance. We use ANTR001 creatively, with performances taking place around the room, and collaborations between art forms are encouraged.
Auditions run before every event and the nights themselves provide an opportunity to develop skills in production, promotion and curation. If you'd like to be involved, please contact email@example.com or come and speak to us at one of the nights.
