Qubit presents the innovative French ensemble soundinitiative in their US debut.
An ensemble with a similar focus on blurring the lines between composer/performer/audience, as well as concert/installation/theatre, TRANSIENTS is two full days of creative new works from France and the United States. These are events not to be missed!
While everyone else dreams of fame, celebrities are searching for anonymity. Social networks give everyone the illusion that they are able to stage a performance whenever the whim arrives. A variety of viewpoints emerge on this timeless theme, all of which remains ambiguous as they drift between fascination and toxicity. But what about the artist? Julia Robert offers her views on celebrity’s diverse aspects by playing flabbergasting hits from the top charts, along with an introspective musical examination of the same works.
