Mocrep is a Chicago-based ensemble dedicated to the performance of radical, 21st century music that engages with contemporary culture – aesthetically, socially, and politically. The group specializes in works that not only synthesize music, theater, and performance art, but also productively embrace the differences between these mediums.
When curating the program for their Darmstadt showcase concert, Mocrep wanted to try and do a program that they could only do in Darmstadt. Each piece will respond to the situation of performing at an international festival in a city that is not their own and a community that is temporary and international. By featuring guest performers from around the world, performing on objects found around the city, and collaborating with artists on new works to be premiered at Darmstadt Mocrep presents a program that explores this unique performance community and Mocrep’s position in it.
