By Ilana SavdieFor the hyper-adjusted, glitchy-eyed, adderall-induced members of society, I highly recommend sitting through a performance by FlucT, an art collective made up of performance artists Monica Mirabile and Sigrid Lauren. I caught a performance during Art Basel Miami Beach last year and it was love at first erratic ecstatic convulsion. Their performances are at the same time raw and choreographed, graceful and glitchy, delicate and powerful, and invite the audience to dissect their own societal conditioning. Their work addresses issues of “sexuality, control, and technology reflecting in the 2010’s commercial saturated climate” and has been accurately described as “a strange seduction.” For their latest piece, Hardening, Monica and Sigrid collaborated with multi-disciplinary artist Fin in a one-time-only takeover performance at a Lower East Side chandelier shop. Fluct’s provocative performances, video work and choreography has been seen in over 60 venues internationally and has been recognized by numerous Museums including The Queens Museum. They have produced three of their own large scale choreographed productions, and collaborate with touring musicians including Pictureplane and MNDR.
I asked FlucT to answer my questions in GIFs. (All GIFs made by FlucT for Bib + Tuck.)How did FlucT come to be?Outside of dance, what defines FlucT?Sigrid, how do you describe Monica?What would your relationship have been like at 13?
