Cibo Matto New Scene

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Cibo Matto’s hip-hop infused, electro pop burrowed deep into our collective earholes throughout the 1990s, becoming a symbol for the new post-genre musical cool. When the group took an announced extended hiatus in 2001, fans wondered if this was the end of Miho Hatori and Yuka Honda’s creative collaboration responsible for beloved hits like “Know Your Chicken,” “Sci-Fi Wasabi” and “Sugar Water.” But, with the release of the 2014 album Hotel Valentine, Cibo Matto has re-established their reputation, thrilling audiences at their popular shows. Experts at establishing mood and always up for an experimental challenge, the duo has developed new musical soundtracks to a number of wild and abstract short movies to be played in this one-time-only performance. Anchoring the screenings are two rare presentations of films made in 1970. First is Yoko Ono's incredible Fluxus epic Fly, which features a fly roaming a woman's body. Second is a modern re-staging of celebrated Bauhaus artist Oskar Schlemmer’s Triadic Ballet—a movie that will blow your mind with its campy costumes, weird choreography and sheer delight. Animations by Calvin Frederick, Una Lorenzen, Miwa Matreyek and Grace Nayoon Rhee and clips from some of the band’s favorite movies are also among the treats in store during this very special evening.
