MARY PRESCOTT: LOUP LUNAIRE
Roulette resident artist Mary Prescott presents the world premiere of Loup Lunaire—a prequel to her spring interdisciplinary performance piece, Mother Me. Loup Lunaire is a conceptual character study of the Mother Wolf done through musical and performative explorations. Prescott creates an interior portrait of the Mother Wolf by examining primal behaviors, natural cyclic patterns, and the unresolved reconciliations of psychological and spiritual dualities.

Composers and vocalist Jennifer Walshe is joined by Mivos Quartet for two recent compositions. In EVERYTHING IS IMPORTANT, Walshe considers our relationship with technology and the encroachment of the internet on every face of life, articulating a world of rapidly accumulating information that arrives at a frenetic, nearly punishing speed. AN GLÉACHT is based on an unfinished film by reclusive artist Caoimhín Breathnach who for decades made tapes and films on astronomy, folkore, crystallography, and found video footage that he believed had the power to heal and shift consciousness. Walshe and Mivos perform a live score to accompany a screening of the film, which Walshe completed.
