By Logan Martell

The Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) has announced its Fall 2023 season, celebrating 15 years of commissioned works, artist residencies, and public programming.

Running from September to December, the season will feature programs spanning the site-wide exhibition of visual art, multimedia concerts, dance performances, film screenings, and more.

Among the performances are works such as Miho Hatori’s “Salon Mondialite,” a vocal and electronic work which explores themes of memory, identity, and colonization; Michelle Ellsworth and Satchel Spencer’s “Evidence of Labor: State of the Kitchen,” a dance work which features three dancers interacting with a kitchen and a Generative Adversarial Network to explore themes of labor in the emerging world of Artificial Intelligence; and “Plasmatic Music,” a two-part concert with works by Romanian-French composer Horajtu Radulescu which explores the volatility and mysticism of sound. The event is set to take place on Sept. 22, 2023.

The fall season will also include public tours, screenings, and conversations with future artists-in-residence, as well as composers/performers Jesse Marino and Antonio McIntosh-Barnett, choreographer Alexis Blake, and preeminent disability studies scholar Petra Kuppers.
