Nick Dunston: La Operación

In the second performance of his year-long Van Lier Fellowship, composer and bassist Nick Dunston premieres La Operación, a multi-movement composition written for soprano voice, two alto saxophones, two double basses, and two percussionists.

Inspired by the 1982 documentary of the same name by Ana María García, La Operación is an abstract interpretation of a historical phenomenon involving colorism in Puerto Rico, eugenics, medical malpractice, second-wave feminism, and American colonialism.
