SCV 2019: Vox Eversio

Jun 11, 2019 | News, Santa Clara Vanguard

The Santa Clara Vanguard is proud to present their 2019 production – Vox Eversio!

Throughout history, counter-culture movements have come about to express opposition of mainstream ideas and beliefs. From the Beat Generation of the 50’s, to the Hippie Movement of the 60’s, and even the Underground Punk Rock Scene of the 70’s & 80’s. This summer, join the revolution as we set out to make our voices heard in a world where the pressure to conform too often takes priority over the expression and celebration of individuality.

Vox Eversio invites the audience into a world in which the courageous choice of nonconformity is not only accepted, but celebrated,” said Michael Gaines, VMAPA Creative Director and SCV Visual Designer. “The choice to bring this show to life was made easier with the knowledge that this skilled cast of performers would be able to perform it with an authenticity that must be experienced to be believed.”

A wide range of styles and inspirations form the basis of Vox Eversio’s musical program. Running the gamut from dark and edgy, to relatable and introspective – these entertaining selections are tailored to show off the talents and maturity of this year’s cast.

As with the musical composition, the identity of this corps is grounded in the personality of the cast. Throughout the design process, members have been encouraged to explore their own individuality, helping to shape new and interesting perspectives on what it means to resist the existential pressures of conformity.

“The talent and experience of the 2019 cast is tremendous,” said Scott Koter, SCV Program Coordinator. “Even more impressive is their willingness to take risks and pour themselves into the identity of the show, stretching the designers creatively and the staff instructionally. This reckless abandon and willingness to follow a different path is at the core of Vox Eversio’s message.”
