The Near Misses


The Near Misses is an experimental pop opera based on the structure of an all-girls’ band premiering spring 2019 followed by a fall tour. Composer/performer Paige Naylor with playwright/director Jennifer Hoyt Tidwell and visual artist Bolanle Adeboye team up to create this multi-faceted performance art project involving dancer Katie Schetlick, musician Catherine Monnes and actor Kara McLane Burke. The Near Misses revolves around collected stories of near-death experiences and the mix of hope and absurdity life has to offer after such near-tragedies.
