An original piece followed by DJ dance party featuring New York's "indie pop diva with an avant-garge edge," Du Yun, DJs Phil Moffa and Lee Mayjahs, and members of International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE). Du Yun's music exists at an artistic crossroads of chamber music, theater, pop music, opera, cabaret, storytelling, visual arts and noise. The highlight of the evening will be Angel's Bone, a world premiere commissioned by the Mann, performed by Du Yun with International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) and DJ Phil Moffa. Angel's Bone will tell the tale of captivity, bondage and eventual liberation of two heavenly angels from a family with a subversive secret. Libretto: Royce Vavrek. Director: Habib Azar
