“Born From Above” (by Original Innocence)
The first presentation of “Original Innocence,” a new religious rock opera by Dave Nuss and Eric Sanders, will be performed on Friday, March 25, 2011 at 8 PM and 10 PM at ISSUE Project Room in Brooklyn (232 3rd Street at 3rd Ave.), staged by acclaimed theatre and opera director Pat Diamond.
“Original Innocence” is a rock opera conceived by Dave Nuss and Eric Sanders. A traveling troupe of performers from a new religious sect dramatically depict their theology in a tent-meeting style ‘passion play’ about the creation of the world. While their tale includes familiar characters from the Biblical narrative — Adam, Eva, Lucifer, and Satan — their myth explores more ‘Eastern’ spiritual concepts of liberation and enlightenment, redefining humanity not as corrupted by but born from ‘original sin.’ The narrative tells of the pre-historical mythology of our world, offering a tale of Adam and Eva’s ‘first love’ in which their ‘sin’ ultimately leads to our ‘salvation’: the beginning of our human existence and ability to love.
