On opera and Nellie Bly.

AntiGravity is proud to announce the development of a new devised work inspired by the life, history and stories of Nellie Bly – the tenacious American journalist famous for her undercover exposé of an insane asylum and 1888 realization of the novel, Around the World in Eighty Days.

Composer Michael Costagliola teams up with lyricist-songwriter Ned Riseley and director-creator Michael T. Williams.

Big Boom: The AntiGravity Theatre Project is born.

The AntiGravity Theatre Project is a new theatre cooperative dedicated to multi-dimensional, dramaturgically alert, community conscious performance free from sociopolitical confines and the force of gravity.  Founded by Kym Moore and Michael Williams, the collective seeks to produce and support performance that traverses boundaries and thumps with a beating heart.
