"Original Studio works will include the world premiere of Karen O‘s psycho-opera, an assault on the tragic joys of youth, directed by Adam Rapp. The premiere will take place at the critically acclaimed, St. Ann’s Warehouse," reads the announcement from The Creators Project.

The Creators project is known for their addition to this year's Coachella festival, in which they did a number of sound & installation art elements for the festival, including the now legendary baloon drop during the end of the Arcade Fire set.
