Program text


Mickey Mouse, Andy Warhol, and Scritti Politti are musical ancestors of SOPHIE. The Los Angelesbased transgender personality delights, perturbs, and appals her audience with melodic, extremely catchy songs intoned by a voice of indefinable gender in a high-pitched chipmunk style. In the substrate of this extra bitter-sugary music, the clacking stumble of stiletto-esque beats are at work with uncanny, burrowing bass. What do we feel when our feelings just seem to be inventions? This is the question that SOPHIE’s art poses: What’s left of us when we don’t just give up on ourselves but also the whole concept of self?
