20 YEARS OF DEDICATION TO DEMANDING EXPERIMENTAL QUEER FILMS
www.mixnyc.org

Because of the importance of sound in films, the MIX Film Festival has extended festival programming to include queer experimental performance audio components.  MIX is working with musicians and artists from across US as well as international artists to present their works in a new exciting dialog alongside experimental filmmakers.   

SPECIAL INTIMATE PERFORMANCE
Friday November16 & Saturday November17

1-4pm (please sign up for a 20 min time slot)
PRICE: $10

SOIE SOYEUSE (SILKY SILK)
Yvon Bonenfant
These 20-minute 'personal performances', created for audiences no larger than five, bring you into a world of silk and sound. Moving around you, Bonenfant chants intense stories - of wind and snow, of struggle and hunger, and of transformation and emergence - all through wordless singing and physical action. Vigorous and wild, yet somehow strangely sweet, this performance brings you into an audio encounter among live bodies and living, breathing hearts. Silky Silk is an invitation to engage with silk, to feel silk and to be silky.  It opens our unconscious desire to enjoy one’s own skin, and to go on the difficult journey toward the liberation of skin to be sensual.

This live performance curation focuses on the experimentation of creating sounds, from altering traditional instruments, temporal recordings, to new technological advances for working with audio.  Each artist uses various methods of understanding fundamental elements of sound to create a shift in our conventional way of hearing; exposing for us, the subtle elements of our own emotions, and the ever shifting understanding of the world around us; exciting and enticing us to explore a world full of possibilities, changes, dreams and desires.
