    PROTOTYPE and Trinity Wall Street present Angel's Bone January 12 at 5:00pm January 15 at 9:00pm Angel's Bone follows the plight of two fallen angels whose nostalgia for earthly delights finds them far from heaven. They are found battered and bruised by a man and his wife, known only as Mr. and Mrs. X.E., who have longed for a better life than their modest middle-class status and bring them into their home and set out to nurse them back to health: they bathe them, wash the dirt from their nails ... then lock them in the root cellar and decide that this is their chance to be wealthy and legendary. The story is told through Du Yun's eclectic music: part chamber music, theatre, pop music, opera, cabaret, and involving visual arts and noise, forming a harmonious and moving piece. Interview with the librettist Royce Vavrek and the composer Du Yun. For more information about the show and the festival: http://prototypefestival.org/
