To celebrate the final Sunday Sessions of the season, British artist Micachu performs a set entitled Local Holiday, Local Sun, Locals, Local Rain, Local Number, Local Drink, Local Customs. Pulled from her vast collection of audio odds and sods, this one off performance of new material is matched with wildly colorful projections from her sketchbook.
Micachu aka Mica Levi, the 26-year-old leader of Micachu and the Shapes, is the unassuming figure creating tunes which manage to perfectly define these sometimes scary, often overwhelming, but always exciting times. A classically trained composer and musician, Mica garnered wide critical acclaim for her soundtrack to Under the Skin, including a BAFTA nomination for best Original Music in Film. She is currently the youngest individual to be named artist in residence at London’s Southbank Center.
Sunday Sessions is a weekly presentation of performance, moving images, dance, music, and discursive programs. Its mission is to embrace live arts as an integral aspect of contemporary practice and ask how art forms, which unfold in the here and now, produce specific ways of thinking and useful means to engage with the broader world. Every Sunday different artists, curators, thinkers and a range of other cultural agents are invited to share their latest projects and ideas with the MoMA PS1 audience.
