MARCELA LUCATELLI is a composer-performer, extended vocalist and performance artist. Born in Brazil and based in Denmark, her practice comes forth through a postmedia approach to the instant of creation, shaped by social and micropolitical emergencies in the encounter with the other in the making. As a composer, Lucatelli is interested in revealing disturbing connections between music and culture, focusing on the performative approach to listening and producing sound. Furthermore, she is constantly looking for surplus of thought and new structures for collaboration. Her pieces have recently featured at diverse festivals and international events such as FILE – Festival Internacional de Linguagem Eletronica (Brazil), Darmstadt Internationale Ferienkurse fur Neue Musik (Germany), Nordic Music Days (Denmark/Iceland), Copenhagen Jazz Festival (Denmark), UNM – Young Nordic Music Days (Sweden), WOMEX (Denmark), Áudio Insurgência (Brazil), NYT!NYT Festival (Denmark), Waverly Festival NYU (USA), among other events worldwide. She has completed her formal studies at the Danish National Academy of Music and The Danish National School of Performing Arts.

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 also productively embrace the differences between these mediums. In this way, we hope to expose and explore new possibilities in performance today.

Comprised of eleven performers, the group’s practice reflects upon the idea of music as a medium, the meaning of performance as a social relationship, and the potential of art as a catalyst for change. Mocrep constantly pushes to address political, social, and cultural questions through performance, and aims to create spaces for audiences to do the same. Collaboration is a central part of this practice, both between composers and performers and across artistic disciplines.

Mocrep has collaborated with such ensembles as the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) and eighth blackbird, participated in Constellation Chicago’s Frequency Festival and a ten-day Festival celebrating the work of Mathias Spahlinger. Cultural partners include Goethe-Institut Chicago, Lumpen Radio, Mana Contemporary, Illinois Humanities Council, and the DePaul Art Museum. Mocrep was one of three young ensembles to be invited to the prestigious Ferienkurse fuer Neue Musik Darmstadt in 2016.

This season, Mocrep is in residence at Mana Contemporary Chicago and dfbrl8r Performance Art Gallery
