Trigger

A riveting oratorio about coming of age in the age of guns.
Originally inspired by the Virginia Tech Massacre, and now echoing more recent incidents, Trigger tackles themes surrounding gun violence in America by incorporating community perspectives into a theatrical choral project. As debates pingpong around gun control, the Second Amendment, and civil liberties, voices both murmur and soar in this initiative about belonging and isolation. With listening and empathy as core experiences of this musical work, Trigger strives to encourage, rather than silence, numerous voices.

Byron Au Yong interdisciplinary works are as exquisite and imaginative as they are unclassifiable. Seattle Weekly
