Sable & Batalion (SOCAN)

Composers: The Legend of Beaver Dam

Sable & Batalion

Sable & Batalion is the creative duo of writers-composers Jerome Sable and Eli Batalion. While now making their foray into filmmaking with the horror musical The Legend of Beaver Dam (Official Selections – 2010 Toronto International Film Festival & 2011 Sundance Film Festival), Sable & Batalion are also known for their work in musical theatre. Both growing up in Montréal, Québec, Sable & Batalion started working together in 1993. Since then, they have written, composed, directed and produced dozens of theatrical productions across the U.S., Canada, Europe and Australia. Their shows often combine a high level of literary and academic sophistication with extreme silliness and absurdity, and are often musicals.

Their musical play, J.O.B. The Hip-Hopera, is a retelling of the bible’s Book of Job through hip-hop. The show ran in Los Angeles and New York where it won various awards and earned rave reviews. The LA Times called the 90-minute rap musical “groundbreaking,” and Daily Variety wrote, “Not only one of the best shows of this year—it’s one of the best shows L.A. has seen in many years.”

Sable & Batalion have released a full-length album of their music, entitled 'G' Marks the Spot. The album is classified as rap/hip-hop, but employs multiple styles of music, including jazz and RnB. Several tracks have been featured in shows on MTV, USA Network, Discovery Channel, IFC.
