Monica Mirabile (US)
An immersive audio-visual performance of live guitar and choreographed dance inside of Matthew Schreiber’s laser sculpture
OPUS 2018 PROJECT
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Patrick Higgins will present an immersive audio-visual performance of his latest album Dossier, featuring custom choreography by Monica Mirabile (FlucT) with Jes Nelson, Aaron Ricks and Tara-Jo Tashna. The performance will occur as an intervention inside of Matthew Schreiber’s laser sculpture, in which musician, dancers, and audience alike will become immersed in a transforming landscape of surround sound, motion, and live-triggered video materials. The piece engages with the alienation and inner emotional economy of contemporary digital life, its politics, erotics, and violence. Dossier was released in June 2018 on Nicolas Jaar’s Other People record label.
Monica Mirabile is a performer, choreographer and visual artist focusing on the experience of performativity and dance as it becomes the physical processing of information and behavior. Known for her work as half of the duo Fluct, she works heavily in collaboration, at times leading up to 150 people through choreographed movement intertwined with conceptual narrative and experimental sound driven to expose the psychology of this social paradigm. Her work has been shown at the Guggenheim, Queens Museum, Signal, Andrea Rosen Gallery, The Broad and MOMA PS1, among others and was recently acquired into the Whitney Museum’s permanent collection.
