A new work by Van McElwee

HEARding Cats Collective presents the world premiere of Original Self, a new video work by St. Louisan Van McElwee, accompanied by music ensembles led by singer Debby Lennon. Three separate musical ensembles will interpret the fifteen-minute video in three different ways. “We recorded a parade of marchers with ten cameras,” McElwee says, “so that in editing I could create a procession that branches into multiple versions of itself, into clouds of variation.” McElwee is a recent Regional Arts Commission Fellow, and a 2010 Guggenheim Fellow. His work has been shown extensively worldwide.
