Weekly live performances that experiment with form. Responding to calls for social isolation, Café La MaMa Live brings La MaMa's 1960s café aesthetic to a virtual platform that links performers and audiences in real time across distance. Guest curators each week give artists a digital platform to share their work with the world.
This week features performances curated by Nicky Paraiso including Truth Bachman, Deepali Gupta, and Chris Ignacio.
Truth Bachman performs FARMED: A Live Podcast Album is a heart pounding soundtrack of an Orwellian America. Interviews with grassroots leaders across the US become the spine-chilling backdrop for an evening of songs by composer/vocalist Truth Bachman. An ongoing project that fuses live and digital mediums, it has been seen at The Greene Space (WNYC), Theatre C (via Parsnip Ship), The Kickstarter Headquarters (via Fresh Ground Pepper), 393 NYC, and as part of an ongoing residency at Joe's Pub at the Public Theater.
Deepali Gupta performs I Love You Stranger is an etymological, epistolary, epiphanic, episodic, phantasmic fantasia! Including an investigation of the archives of a pivotal romance, evidence of an abundance of selves, an exploration of the disputed history of a psychiatric disorder—and an inquiry into the nature of self-destruction. What happened to you, and did it ever go away? A year in the life of the artist throws a lifetime into relief.
Chris Ignacio will be performing a selection from his upcoming piece called "How to Sing: A Survival Guide"
