ChamberQUEER Festival – Opening Night
June 10 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
A part of The Future Is… Festival: ChamberQUEER 2022 opens their two-show engagement at National Sawdust on June 10 by drawing centuries of music into conversation – juxtaposing boundary-breaking Renaissance nuns with the voices of three fantastic emerging composers drawn from their 2020 Call for Scores.
A new collaboration by Miriam Parker and Mazz Swift weaves musical voices into conversation across the centuries through improvisation and movement. Connor D’Netto’s “Dawn Wail for the Dead” is a potent reminder to honor our ancestors; the iconoclasm of Meredith Monk and Talib Rasul Hakim, and Alexis Lamb and Aiden Feltkamp’s “For Marsha (P. Johnson)” bring a queer lens on the New York downtown scene into dialogue with a new work by Rosśa Crean and Bea Goodwin for Lucas Bouk and CQ founder Andrew Yee that harkens back to queer identity in the 18th century. Also featuring Clara Kim, Giancarlo Latta, Jessica Meyer, Elizabeth van Os, Eli McCormack, Melissa Wimbish, MaKayla McDonald, and CQ founders Brian Mummert and Jules Biber.
