Event description
IlluminArts and ICA Miami present: Uprising: A musical performance inspired by the work of artist Paulo Nazareth

About this Event

IlluminArts presents Uprising, a musical exploration inspired by Paulo Nazareth's first solo US museum exhibition, “Melee,” at ICA Miami. An artist who works across mediums, Nazareth uses performance and sculpture—monumental and ephemeral—to critique the colonial experience in Brazil and the Americas. His durational performances and installations draw from his joint African and Indigenous heritage to highlight marginalized historical legacies, non-Western cosmovisions, and potential methods of nonexploitative living and relating. Featuring music of Brazilian composers Hector Villa-Lobos, Francisco Mignone and Chico Buarque, along with music by Native American composer Jerod Impichchaachaaha' Tate and others, this non-traditional performance experience will by one you don't want to miss. IlluminArts welcomes back pianist and arranger Mary Adelyn Kauffman, baritone Jorell Williams (previously seen in the 2017 performance, The Dandy Lion Roars), and "show-stealing" (New York Times) soprano, Melissa Wimbish to lead the ensemble in this musical uprising.
