  • Location: Monkey Town, Williamsburg, New York
  • Description: Catalan Video-Artist performs live with Brooklyn indie rock band For Feather and French Illustrator Isabelle Duverger.“Until There” starts with images and movement as a visual storytelling, a sensual journey of the imaginary world of the filmmaker and visual artist, Laia Cabrera. Four screens with two video streams will surround you with a unique visual experience of timelessness and human landscape. She uses a variety of media: projected imagery merging cinematic arts, dance, photography, theater, visual arts, writing etc... As a part of the performance, Laia Cabrera will be working with visuals and drawing animation by Isabelle Duverger projected live in conjunction with indie pop/rock For Feather. The band has mastered the art of turning the mundane into the marvelous. Quirky melodies pull rather than push the listener, keeping things light with spacious harmonies evoking the early Beatles.www.laiacabrera.comwww.forfeather.comwww.isabelleduverger.comCover: $7
