Parlour Room Sessions: Sugar Vendil

Saturday April 27 @ 5:30 pm

$10 – $15

Sugar Vendil is a composer, pianist, interdisciplinary artist and theatre maker. Her artistic practice is strongly rooted in rigorous discipline as a musician and gradually expanded into performance that integrates music, movement, and unconventional approaches to the piano.  As a collaborative artist, Vendil has been commissioned for a variety of projects by visual artists, fashion designers, and choreographers. She is a proud second generation Filipinx American.

Vendil has performed at a variety of venues, ranging from arts spaces such as BAM Fisher, Dixon Place, Knockdown Center’s Ready Room, National Sawdust, the New School’s Glassbox Theater, and Roulette; to galleries and spaces such as The Development Gallery, Milk Studios, Spring Studios, and others. She was a 2017 Summer Labs Artist in Residence at National Sawdust and a 2016 Fellow in the Target Margin Institute for Collaborative Theater Making.  Other residencies include Avaloch Farm, Earthdance (E|MERGE Multidisciplinary Residency), the A-Z West Wagon Station Encampment, Arts Letters & Numbers, and Yaddo. She is the founder of a contemporary music ensemble, The Nouveau Classical Project. Vendil is a 2019 resident artist at Mabou Mines and has a residency at Target Margin in February 2019.

This evening’s performance will be a work-in-progress showing and talk about two pieces from Vedil’s Centrifugal commissioning project. Works by Angelica Negrón and Mary Kouyoumdjian.
