CSO PROOF: SINGULIS ET SIMUL
Baroque music meets vogue ballroom culture.
Frédéric Nauczyciel, curator
Keitaro Harada, conductor
House of HMU
Contemporary Arts Center, co-producer
"The vogue ballroom culture is defined by its celebration of femininity in the African American transgender community, with roots dating back to the Harlem Renaissance. It resonates with the Baroque period. I create a path to explore juxtapositions between Baroque music and urban ballroom culture of vogue, and the street culture of marching bands. I will combine the CSO and performance artists from Paris, Baltimore and Cincinnati—to ultimately transform the concert form, and the stage into an area of accidental proximity." —Frédéric Nauczyciel
