“The You Voice” Special Performance
On February 11th, to celebrate the end of the two month run of Derrick Belcham’s “The You Voice” at Mana Contemporary, dancer and choreographer Rebecca Margolick, musician David Moore of Bing & Ruth and Derrick Belcham will perform a new 45-minute piece based on the text of the exhibition. David Moore will play a solo electric organ set which activates a custom lighting system designed by Belcham as Ms. Margolick performs a new choreography as an audience watches in the round. Following the performance, the audience will be invited into the main foyer of Mana for drinks and one final walkthrough of “The You Voice” before it closes.
This event is free and open to the public.
