About this event
RSVP: bemiscenter.eventbrite.com STREAM: twitch.tv/bemiscenter In 2021, Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts celebrates its 40th year! We begin this next chapter in our history with a new identity and website that mirror the bold and vibrant artistic activity that is generated here. Join us to kick-off the year-long celebration with a website launch party + experimental music performance by Dis Fig! Dis Fig For Berlin-based producer and DJ Felicia Chen (aka Dis Fig), risk-taking and provocation is an integral part of the creative process. Chen's new live show fleshes out the unflinching sonics of debut LP 'Purge' (released in Spring 2019 on New York collective and experimental label PTP) into an astonishing and annihilating spectacle, her singularity on stage only augmenting the sense of a very personal rite of exorcism. Marking a move away from the dancefloor strictures that Dis Fig continues to explore in her full-blooded, multi-layered DJ sets, Purge is a calculated procedure towards a new chaotic world. Tinted by fever dream atmospherics, Chen places her own vocals, which morph between inconsolable distorted wails and polyphonic reverie, at the forefront. Purge is an involuntary act; it journeys into the body-breaking cost of emotional repression and the crippling catharsis that inevitably follows.
