VERY SPECIAL PERFORMANCE THIS FRIDAY FROM PROMISING YOUNG BAY AREA ARTIST
Mana Maddy (Madeline Streicek), former lead singer for Antioquia, will celebrate the release of her debut solo EP, Another Trip Around the Sun, this Friday, June 22nd at the Berkeley Fellowship Unitarian Universalist Church in Berkeley, CA. For the debut of her long-awaited EP Maddy joins forces with local installation and performance artist Kaitlin McSweeney (Judgement Day/Foxtails Brigade Parlour series, Project Ion) bringing together dance, projected visuals, opera and selected readings in a structure akin to that of ancient Greek theater, complete with an interactive chorus created for the event called One Breath Choir. Inspired by the proximity of the summer solstice to Maddy’s EP release, the event is woven with themes classically associated with solstice time.
