Mobius Artist Group performance with dance/installation art and live music. This is a roughly 60-minute structured improvisation with plastic objects. The piece will morph between solos, duets, quad and trio combinations of the 4 artists that include movement, sound, and performance actions. The work will be cumulative and acquire performance remnants of past actions that will serve as a sculptural backdrop as the piece progresses.

About the Artists:

Performers: Jimena Bermejo, Chris Brokaw, Sara June, Max Lord dancer/choreographer Jimena Bermejo and musician Chris Brokaw have been collaborating together since 2017, on works combining performance art, multimedia movement, and punk rock tautology. Bermejo brings a wealth of experience as a member of Mobius (Boston) and a dancer in various ensembles; Brokaw brings musical and performative experiences drawn from 20+ years performing rock music and scoring films. Together they have performed at Judson Hall (New York), Green Street Studios (Boston) and MAGMA (Gloucester); curated an evening of performance at the Distillery Gallery (South Boston); and performed a live-installation work in downtown Belfast, Northern Ireland, in coordination with BBelfast. This performance will be the premier collaboration between June/Lord and Bermejo/Brokaw, working in a series of duos, trios and quartets.
