about mocrep

Mocrep is a collective creating radically experimental, interdisciplinary, and collaborative work. Equal parts music, performance art, video art, and movement, its varied and fluid practice reflects the complexity of contemporary culture and relationships. Its work subverts the rigid structures that circumscribe relations among artists and commodify the products of their labor, creating new possibilities for exchange among artists, artworks, and audiences.

Mocrep has presented work at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Arts Club of Chicago, and was one of three ensembles to be invited to the prestigious Ferienkurse fuer Neue Musik Darmstadt in 2016. Its cultural partners in Chicago include Goethe-Institut Chicago, Lumpen Radio, Illinois Humanities Council, Parlour Tapes+, High Concept Laboratories, International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), and Ensemble Dal Niente. Mocrep has held residencies at Mana Contemporary Chicago, dfbrl8r performance art gallery, and Stanford University. 

Mocrep's 2018–19 season includes collaborations with Lee Blalock, The Neo-Futurists, and the Civic Orchestra of Chicago.
