MARCH 2011:  Work has begun to put the finishing touches on the script and music for DAGMAR:  EXO, a new "folktronica" musical based on the DAGMAR project, with music and lyrics by Jim Bauer and book by Bauer and his DAGMAR bandmate/creative partner MEGHAN McGEARY.  The music - a genre-bending blend of folk and electronica -- is being produced in collaboration with percussionist DAVID ROZENBLATT and U.K. engineer/producer ROBBIE BRONNIMANN.  The show tells the story of a guy who can't get out of bed in the morning and an insect goddess who plunges through the ether to rescue him.  Turns out, she's more than just a goddess.  It's an apocalyptic tale of love, separation, yearning, loss, woe and finally, ecstasy.  The target is to present first developmental productions of the multi-media show in early 2012. 

JANUARY 2011:  Jim Bauer and Pulitzer prize-winning playwright Nilo Cruz ("Anna in the Tropics") have been commissioned by PREMIERES to work together in creating a new one-person short musical for the Premieres  "Inner Voices" series.  Performances of the new piece will be presented in NYC in early 2012.
