Stephen Romano Gallery in collaboration with curators Kalyana Thiru and Nyahzul Art, is pleased to bring you "Interpreters Multimedia", a live dance performance, video, live vocal performance, conceptual Dj performance, and live make-up art interpretation of the gallery's current exhibitions.
This first installment is part of a series called "Interpreters Multimedia: It is a Meaningful Life". Here, the exploration of the "grotesque" by William Mortensen, the ritualistic withcraft practices captured in Rik Garrett's Earth Magic, the personal recounting and symbolism photographed by Lu Zhang, and the voodoo artefacts, spellbooks, ghostly explorations, and aesthetics of the macarbre and illusion of In Missa Interfectionis are perceived as the artist/practioner's attempt at finding meaning. The performers are connected to art in which their respective process into the darker elements of the self, psyche, aesthetic and esoteric are explored and expressed. Each performer shows a slight awareness and sensitivity to their surrounding art and fellow performer. The viewer is invited to experience a "feeling" of perhaps synesthesia of overall mood, as well as its detail.
Zak Moon will play the darker side of his soulful minimal techno, deep house selections to introduce you to this evening's mood.

Video by Steven Trumon Gray of Andrea Murillo’s dance performance "Remedios".
Modern Dancer Andrea Murillo will present a live solo dance performance of "Remedios".
Singer/producer Andru Pramuk will give a haunting performance under his alias, "Andrak".
Kalyana Thiru will be creating the "cartoon self" over the "real self" of participants and volunteers as a performance piece to relate to her "Patternbraker #0001" piece in the In Missa Interfectionis group show. The purpose is to illustrate the juxtaposition of both extremes of "abstract reality" and "reality" in order to uncover its "third reality", its "meaning". Participating cartooned artists will be Zak Moon, Kalyana Thiru, Nyahzul, Eman Nadar. Jewelry and costuming by Donghee Ruda Lee http://www.playthetrack9.com/
