Mix at Six: Nathalie Joachim + Spektral Quartet (In-Person)

October 5 @ 6:00 pm

A celebration of iconic yet under-recognized Haitian female artists, Fanm d’Ayiti (“Women of Haiti”) is an evening-length work for voice, flute, string quartet, and electronics developed by composer/performer Nathalie Joachim and featuring Chicago’s own Spektral Quartet.

Equal parts an encounter with Joachim’s Haitian heritage and an effort to give voice to marginalized artists, Fanm d’Ayiti is iridescent in its exhibition of powerful women – in revolution, on stage, or in the home. From the deeply personal, including recorded voices of Joachim’s grandmother and the girls’ choir from her family’s farming village of Dantan, to the inspiringly prominent – featuring arrangements of songs by some of the greatest known female voices in Haitian history and recorded interviews with them about their fight for social justice – Fanm d’Ayiti is an uplifting and thought-provoking sonic experience.

COVID-19 Protocol: Proof of full vaccination or a recent negative COVID-19 test is required. All patrons must be fully masked. More details are on the Harris website.
