OK Miss is part of the Spring Revolution festival, National Sawdust’s annual two week festival celebrating the musical revolution created by Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring. Held from March 1st through March 11th, this year Spring Revolution celebrates the voice of multicultural women, with every night featuring female curators, artists and composers because the female perspective is the human perspective and the human perspective should be inclusive.
Pulitzer Prize winning composer and “indie pop diva” Du Yun (New York Times) takes the stage with OK Miss, her own experimental band, who will debut a slew of new material. The evening will include excerpts from Du Yun’s own musical Dim Sum Warriors that is currently on tour in China.
OK Miss was begun by Du Yun to create a singular experience—a group existing as both rock band and chamber ensemble, all while fostering all that exists in-between. The group has performed at museums, concert halls, theatres, and for silent films.
