AURORA NEALAND's MONOCLE ENSEMBLE PROJECT

MILLENNIUM STAGE at the John F. Kennedy Center

DIRECT CURRENT

The Monocle Ensemble brings together the songs of composer/performer Aurora Nealand, and choreographer/dancer Shannon Stewart. The Direct Current Festival will present a micro version of larger collaborations & concerts that Nealand & Stewart have done in the past at site specific venues in New Orleans and Chicago. Nealand’s music examines the intersections between love, technology, community, government, mental health and sound in our modern world. Less loftily, “ it’s art-pop and performance art about feelings & perception”, greatly influenced by the last 2 decades of living and breathing through the beauty and disfunction of infrastructure, art, music, tradition and innovation in New Orleans, LA. The Monocle Ensemble consists of a stellar group of notable New Orleans musicians including Tif Lamson (Givers). free feral (Les Cenelles), Cliff Hines (Rickie Lee Jones Band), Nathan Lambertson (Mike Dillon Band), Paul Thibodeaux (The Royal Roses), and dancers Kimmie Allen & Shannon Stewart. 

This even will be streamed live Here
