FlucT is the collaborative work of Sigrid Lauren and Monica Mirabile. Creating original soundscapes linking a manipulated pop music psychosis with violently intimate dance, their compositions become projections aimed at exposing authorities of control in the United States capital culture. Established in 2010, Lauren and Mirabile create duets, video installation, original scores, sculpture, and choreography. They have performed and exhibited at the Guggenheim, The Broad Museum, Miami Art Basel, SIGNAL, Queens Museum and Andrea Rosen Gallery. Their large-scale choreographed productions have included a multiplicity of performing artists, dancers, non-dancers and technicians (‘is it god or am i dog’, UpwardFacingControlTableTop’ and ‘Bigger Than You’) and they frequently collaborate with musicians including SOPHIE and PicturePlane, as well as founded Otion Front Studio, a performance and dance space in Brooklyn, New York. Their work has been reviewed by Art in America, The New York Times, The Fader, and Cura Magazine, among others.
