JUPITER NIGHTS: Monica Mirabile // Kinlaw // Davon

June 2


At the Basilica Gallery Building 
108 South Front Street, Hudson, NY 12534 (right next to the main building on our campus)

JUPITER NIGHTS – Basilica Hudson’s new weekly series of arts events in our Gallery Building – continues with performance artists and Basilica Hudson alumni Monica Mirabile, Kinlaw and Davon (Hudson, NY).

Monica Mirabile (b. Clearwater, Florida in 1988) is an artist living in NYC. Her work explores performance as behavior, focusing on the information we’ve had no choice but to absorb. Accompanied by audio composition, scenographic installation and performance, her choreographed productions focus on support while elaborating on how authority, power and manipulation operate inside the body. Mirabile points to the antidote within the problem- letting the poetic nature of the collapse of time be modeled with playful and poetic sentiment. Her work is deeply collaborative and aims to stimulate an intensely felt living system.

Mirabile will present “ATUD,” a collaborative work in process performance rooted in the queering of family systems, grief, criminality, and the collapsing of time within one’s body.

ATUD” is a work in process performance of the most recent work by choreographer and artist Monica Mirabile, featuring an ensemble of performers and collaborators Edythe Woolley, Kate Williams, Joy Norton and Maxi Canion, with a soundtrack by musician Aaron David Ross (ADR) and executive production support by Graeme Flegenheimer. The performance is rooted in the queering of family systems, grief, criminality, and the collapsing of time within one’s body. Inspired by the artist’s late Italian American Father, the theme of mafia centers a particular notion of family and the secular ecosystem that rises from the need to develop a support system outside of the status quo.
