The Kitchen Sisters’ NPR series is the inspiration for Hidden World of Girls: Stories for Orchestra, a full evening-length, interdisciplinary work exploring the lives of girls and the women they become—stories of coming of age, rituals and rites of passage, secret identities—women who crossed a line, blazed a trail, changed the tide. The project uses the power of the symphonic form and contemporary multimedia to bring these women and girls’ culturally diverse stories to new audiences. This exciting collaboration brings together a team of artists from a range of mediums—The Kitchen Sisters (Nikki Silva/Davia Nelson) as lead artists/concept, Laura Karpman as lead composer/creative director, three female composers (Nora Kroll-Rosenbaum, Alexandra du Bois and Clarice Assad), the multimedia group Obscura Digital under the direction of Marta Salas Porras, and MacArthur Fellow, conductor Marin Alsop.
