Art
Double in the Bubble
A new series of rogue performances throughout Miami by Los Angeles-based soprano and performance artist Juliana Snapper. Beginning tonight, Snapper will covertly launch a sequence of original duets with Miami locals who work in tollbooths, truck cabs, and watchtowers, among others. The duets, co-written by each collaborating duo, will reflect the material uniqueness of each pair of voices and the life and music that shaped each one. The windows enclosing each workspace look out onto Miami, and also allow a new view in on spaces and people we interact with everyday, as these spaces become stages for a different kind of exchange. Coloratura-in-exilio Snapper creates radical operas in unlikely spaces, usually at great personal risk and inevitably drawing her closer to financial ruin. She employs opera as a technology of exchange both in grandiose collaborations and intimate performances, often applying original research to terrible ideas, like singing underwater, to push the expressive limits of her instrument. Snapper studied voice at the Oberlin Conservatory and is dragging out her Ph.D. in Critical Studies/Experimental Practices from the University of California, San Diego. Her large works have been produced across Europe, and her intimate pieces incubated at PS1/MoMA, the Walker Art Center and, most tenderly and lustrously, Machine Project and Cannonball.
