Limp limbs are just a beginning, death can be seen from many angles where in sounds become signs.
No doors on the closet,
Keep mouth open tongue out for a taste
Will it always feel better, then, it looks.
Offshoots of the unconscious passions the muscle momentarily honest; this fertility beyond use or number.
Walking into a room I can not see a thing, so fond when its raining in here.
You are light and hard; noodling around is fine just don’t put that on my internet.
Dig deep and marinate with my mothers, know will no luck.
Delusions of the meat suit prison but I have perfect right to look for information in here. Situation became clearer; cello, bass, save yourself living for those who cannot. Endeavoring perpetual ballad, ironic armies questioning force.
Underwrite my rhythm stand beside you roof off draws new texture dripping arm.
At least when you’re alone you can always go home.
‘Every consciousness pursues the death of another’ but I’m depthening with et al other. How do we modify the seeds that define us by simply approaching? It is rare we touch our bodies with both hands to color our mind, to shape our perception.
Light wet meat suit shake off; the body as lyricist and the mind a river.

Recycles the residual energies of both dead dog Nike and dead dad Robert to mirror the psychological analysis and acceptance of their intimate violent deaths. The 15 bodies engage with internalized loops that linger, balancing the feel of external distraction. A choreography that is a symphony of symptom, they maneuver through the fragrance of 8 sound artists/producers Lauren adored in the five years since her father's death.

LOVE DOGS IN YELLOW LIGHTING
Millennial dilemmas giving vacancy at home
Given vacant direction and constant, waiting drones.
Unrepressed & broken once, twice, twice before.
Give themselves to be, ‘..love dogs no one knows the names of..’
Giving give their names no one’s heard yet; waiting drones.
Spitting bitches in yellow lightening
concentrated designing leaps heaps mo.
In caution & wholly confined in;
drive that bitch through the intersection.

Even Cowgirls Get The Blues is a series of solo demonstrations that subverts current social topics [2013-2016] and offers therapeutic exercises accessing the body's internal organs. ECGB uses the voice with a variety of vocoders and pedals to hypnotize, pre-recorded samples from various teachers/artists to support [always including Sasha Go Hard & Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen], and the contorting, thrashing and moving body to extend demonstration.

BOD[E]SOFTWARE is a new dance work by Sigrid Lauren (FlucT) + Rebecca Warzer (Bennington College) that showcases select F/W 15 pieces from DAIMORF. This dance and fashion event occurred Wednesday February 18th 2015 at 8pm.
BOD[E]SOFTWARE is a generational tongue kiss between two dance artists a decade apart who both recognize the body as a computational and sensual interface. The performance piece uses the moving body as a tool to address the concepts of accelerationism and self-representation.
BOD[E]SOFTWARE is the first ever collaboration between the networking bodies of Gina Chiappetta / Nathalie Encarnacion/ Lauren Glading / Maya Laner / Sigrid Lauren / Whitney Mallett / Monica Mirabile / Gianni Onassis / Seáncé / Whitney Vangrin / Bebe Ya-Ma. The material sources, and subsequently distorts, classical images of gendered self-representation on the Internet, specifically on Instagram. The piece approaches a new language of images that describes a mono-gendered representation online.
BOD[E]SOFTWARE scrolls through material that relates the performativity of these constructed identities on Instagram with the performativity of moving bodies in an IRL dance context.
DAIMORF is a non binary fashion label based in NYC striving to synchronize the sexes via wearable duality. The pieces modeled by the dancers are a combination of the unseen F/W 15 collection, previous S/S 15 collection and custom pieces for the performance.

A FlucT Production mirroring a 'traditional' FlucT performance/formula with 13 women for the first time for the MODEL HOME performance art installation series.
MODEL HOME is a performance art installation series curated by FlucT (Sigrid Lauren & Monica Mirabile ) and set in an almost life-size DOLLHOUSE with a playground, complete with a stripper pole and swing set.
Secret Project Robot Art Experiment and Fluct collaborated with different artists throughout the April 2015 to create an immersive performance event deriving from the familiar interpretations of "home" / house / suburb / doll / movement poetics and culture.

In their newest collaboration, multi-disciplinary Canadian artist Rebecca Fun Simonetti and NYC-based performance artists Sigrid Lauren & Monica Mirabile [FLUCT] transformed a Bowery chandelier store into an immersive performance-installation. Audiences were directed through the store by a team of anonymous “security guards”, and given brochures made by outlining a series of exercises choreographed by FlucT meant to “prepare the mind and body for commercial overdose”. FIN'S music reverberated amidst a cave of chandeliers while FlucT embodied glitchy identities of a business woman and a yoga girl, simultaneously performing enduranced based poses from the brochure. Throughout the space, FIN projected video loops of her animation through/into chandeliers - refracting images onto the audience and performers. Combining various mediums, Hardening engages with notions of cultural fantasy, consumer impulses, and the construction of female identity. For this special hour-long piece, Sigrid Lauren, Monica Mirabile, and Rebecca Fin Simonetti activated the power of a commercial space as a tool for both manipulation and enchantment.

Six female dancers experience and respond to their objectified representations in the early 2010’s. They are indistinguishable in appearance, commodified aesthetically, as they experience a parallel unconscious response. Curves out their, beyond Gandolf; rope a nu ‘objectification.’ Nus trend created in presence, posture, and identity.

Transvalue, the Appraisal of Social Bodies is a new work by the dance project FlucT debuting at Fitness Center for Arts & Tactics July 20-21st.

At Transvalue, the audience is to be led through five rooms, each focused on a medium, where they will be further engaged by a mix of synchronized choreography and informed improvisation. Transvalue features over 14 moving artists and 7 original sound arts/mixes that become revealed as a narrative while walking through.
Participating Performers: Alex Crotta, Ana Lieberman, Billy Fortini, Bradford Kessler, Ciara Clements, Genevieve Belleveau, James Thomas Marsh, Kei Kreutler, Monica Mirabile, Sara Blazej, and Sigrid Lauren.
