Angélica Negrón with Muriel Louveau and Emily Marie Pope: "Isterica"

6:30pm doors • 7:30pm show


Puerto Rican composer/multi-instrumentalist Angélica Negrón, one of Paste magazine’s “20 most innovative musicians working today,” is known for warping childlike sounds into bright, emotionally precise tableaus. In Isterica, Negrón joins forces with singer/composer Muriel Loveau and dancer/choreographer Emily Marie Pope for a series of collaborative improvisations exploring the historical and sociocultural dynamics of hysteria.

Negrón and Louveau will perform structured improvisations combining voices with electronics and unusual instruments, and Pope will respond in real time by physicalizing the soundscapes they produce. The result is a poetic, sonic, and physical realization of their inquiry into archetypes of women and emotion, and perceptions of gender, transgression, and emancipation.

The performance will be followed by a talk with psychoanalyst Paola Mieli and the artists.
