Co-presented with Spoleto Festival USA, the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art presents Wampum by Cherokee/Muscogee Native American artist and composer Elisa Harkins. An act of Indigenous Futurism, combining disco and Indigenous language to preserve and celebrate disappearing languages through active, this innovative performance features Harkins singing in a combination of Cherokee, English and Muscogee (Creek) and moving rhythmically to electronic dance tracks inspired by Indigenous music. Both dreamy and intense, this piece effortlessly fuses primitive and modern, timeless and of this time.
