Mocrep is thrilled to present a performance collaboration with Rob Kelsey, an artist who possesses a truly unique voice among young comic book artists. Kelsey's work explores alienation, materiality, character, and emergent narrative. This concert, developed out of several months of collaborative effort, will present four original works that explore the performative and social potential of the comics medium, as well as the rich connections between music, narrative, performance art and visual art. Run time: approx. 50 min
Mocrep is a Chicago-based ensemble dedicated to the performance of radical, 21st century music that engages with contemporary culture - aesthetically, socially, and politically. We specialize in works that not only synthesize music, theater, and performance art, but productively embrace the differences between these mediums. In this way, we hope to expose and explore new possibilities in performance today.
