City Slang: What’s going on at Detroit Contemporary?

Posted By on Thu, Dec 12, 2013 at 9:05 AM

December is a busy month at the Detroit Contemporary art gallery, and there are plenty of music-related goings on. Get the full lowdown here.

December 19 (and every third Thursday), check out Creative [dance] Incubator, which “unites experimental movement artists on to present short works and to share creative concepts, explore new possibilities and discuss all things movement. Each incubator is curated and hosted by a member of the Detroit artistic community.”

This Saturday, December 14, you can go see the Ulysses Project, “a suite inspired by James Joyce's modernist classic. The suite digs into the novel’s wide range of themes and the evolution of its protagonists through free jazz, rock, funk, and much more, and uses improvisation to explore Joyce’s stream of consciousness prose. The album was released in October, and was praised by Alterego Magazine as "powerful... fresh, relevant, a success" and by [arts]seen as "a manic journey of eerie beauty."

That same evening, there’s a performance of James Cornish's Crypticzero, which “explores the relationship between musical and dance improvisation, sonic and physical movement and contrast, with powerful results.”
