Three Remarkable Performances this Week

If you're interested in experimental film, sound, photography, or performance... this is your week at CIA.

Three Remarkable Performances this Week

Canadian collaborators Joe Kelly and Jay Crocker will perform live real-time animation at CIA’s Visual Arts + Technologies Coventry Center on Thursday. Then hot on the heels of their performance, Kelly and Crocker will discuss their creative careers and their methods of working as part of CIA’s Lunch on Fridays Series. And finally on Saturday, MOCA Cleveland will present “Unsung Torsos,” an experimental opera featuring CIA’s own Sarah Paul (T.I.M.E.-Digital Arts faculty).

Coventry Center Performance
Manjello performed by Canadian artists Joe Kelly and Jay Crocker
Thursday, October 28, 7 pm
CIA’s VAT Coventry Center
1854 Coventry Rd.
Free + Open

Collaborators Crocker and Kelly will create a real-time drawn-on-film animation with accompanying soundtrack in front of a live audience. Kelly will create evolving imagery on a loop of clear 16mm film, progressively building visuals with inks and with each subsequent pass of the film loop through the projector. Crocker will respond to the developing animation with an array of digital and analogue noisemaking devices. This work creates a transitory footprint of the visual and auditory mark-making journey taken by Kelly and Crocker.

Lunch on Friday
Joe Kelly and Jay Crocker
Friday, October 29, 12:15pm
CIA’s Ohio Bell Auditorium
11141 East Boulevard
Free + Open

On Friday the pair will appear as part of the Lunch on Fridays Series, giving their audience an overview of their careers and insights into how they make work. A Canadian and Newfoundland-born media artist currently living and working in Alberta, Calgary, Joe Kelly has made a number of films that have received international awards. He works primarily with film, and has completed and screened ten films on super 8, 16 and 35mm formats. Jay Crocker is a musical explorer, multi-instrumentalist, analog recordist/producer, and general creative wunderkind. Over the last decade Crocker has been relentless in his contribution to both the Canadian independent music scene as well helping to put Calgary's avant-guard and noise scene on the map.

These events are made possible by The Cleveland Institute of Art’s Visual Arts and Technologies Environment, CIA’s Sculpture Department and CIA’s George P. Bickford Endowment for Visiting Artists.

The Unsung Torsos: An Experimental Opera in Thirteen Parts
by Sarah Paul and Julia Christensen

Saturday, October 30
Reception 7pm, Performance 8pm
Tickets $5 (students free by calling 216.421.8672 x71)
MOCA Cleveland
8501 Carnegie Avenue

“The Unsung Torsos: An Experimental Opera in 13 Parts” is a new MOCA-commissioned performance work by Sarah Paul and Julia Christensen, performed by Paul, Christensen, and the Women and Art Music Ensemble (WAM!) of Oberlin Conservatory. Comprised of video scores, pop music, and sonic narratives, the opera tells the story of the infamous Cleveland “Torso Murders” of the 1930s––a sensational case that has yet to be solved. Rather than focus on the longstanding question of whodunit, Christensen, Paul, and WAM celebrate the spirit of the forsaken torsos, through music, poetry, and moving image. (Unsung Torsos website or MOCA's event page)

COSTUMES HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! This is the night before All Hallows' Eve after all...
