Theatre for Transformation

INSPIRA formed in 2014 at the Avaloch Chamber Music Retreat to create a new work based on African American spirituals. Under the musical direction of composer/saxophonist Francis Wong, violinist Michael Jamanis and playwright-poet Amanda Kemp created INSPIRA: The Power of the Spiritual which toured in 2015 and 2016. Fusing jazz and classical vocabularies, INSPIRA artfully incorporates images and poetry to create contemporary performances that promote social justice and beauty. Francis, Michael and Amanda have performed worldwide in their respective fields of jazz, classical and theatre. They've been featured at the Johannesburg Int'l Arts Festival, Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Yoshi's and the NCPA in Beijing.
