ANGELMAKERS: Songs for Female Serial Killers is a true-crime cabaret concert that explores the moments and motives of female serial killers throughout history. With music ranging from post-punk to indie rock to country and beyond, this concert-play asks audiences: does our understanding of someone as both sufferer and perpetrator affect our ability to empathize? Using the crack-you-open power of music and the steeped-in notions of women as the more sympathetic (and empathetic) gender, this piece asks audiences to simultaneously hold both their righteous anger at grievous destruction and their awareness of the humanity inside each of us.
