Mocrep is a Chicago-based ensemble dedicated to the performance of radical, 21st century music that engages with contemporary culture - aesthetically, socially, and politically. We specialize in works that not only synthesize music, theater, and performance art, but productively embrace the differences between these mediums. In this way, we hope to expose and explore new possibilities in performance today. 

This program, in its explorations of movement, bodies, sampling, and performance relationships, critiques and reflects on social and political structures and their musical implications. David Alan Broome’s critiques of capitalism in “Drink,” Brigitta Muntendorf’s critiques of hierarchies in “Yes, Master,” and Jennifer Walshe’s critiques of classical instrumental performance in “Wash Me Whiter Than Snow” will all contribute to a politically potent and musically engaging performance.
