The innovative multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and composer with the Royal Roses, the Monocle, the Panorama Jazz Band, and the Klezmer All Stars turns up to discuss her many projects, as well as her rural, hippie childhood and eventual escape to New Orleans. Her lightness of spirit is a breath of fresh air. Aurora had lots of interdisciplinary training at Oberlin College and Paris' Jacques LeCoq School of Physical Theatre, but tonight it’s the Troubled Men who are made to heel.
