Interdisciplinary artist, Hector Canonge, and Soprano Gian-Carla Tisera present FRACTURING PASSAGE a public performance and art intervention as part of Uptown Arts Stroll 2012. Their public presentation, coinciding with and as a prologue to NoMAA’s Summer Art Exhibition, will take place on Thursday, June 7th, 5:30 - 6:30 PM at the 190 Street & Broadway Tunnel that connects to the #1 Subway entrance (191 St.) in Northern Manhattan.
Through Tisera’s musical and vocal interpretations, and Canonge’s performative movements, FRACTURING PASSAGE explores the urban terrain as notions of beauty, transformation, and elation are evoked in an otherwise decrepit environment. The connections, dislocations, and references the artists make about the physical and ethereal, life and death, and good and evil, take surprising turns as they move through the commuters’ tunnel. FRACTURING PASSAGE is the first collaboration between Canonge and Tisera in their desire (vision) to integrate classical music and operatic singing with contemporary performance art. Independently, they have performed and presented their work at various prestigious institutions in the USA and abroad.
