Weightless weaves together myth with the Kilbanes’ celebrated indie rock sound to tell a story of sisterhood, love, betrayal, and rebirth. This Oakland-based, theatrical rock band is the musical experiment of Kate Kilbane and Dan Moses, a songwriting duo (who happen to be married). The Kilbanes have created a performance style that blends the raucous energy of a rock show with the mesmerizing storytelling found in raw, experimental theater.
The Kilbanes are currently under commission by A.C.T.’s Young Conservatory to create a new musical for young actors.
