About this Performance

An iconic performance art piece from the 1970s is reimagined for today with Iced Bodies. An ice cello dyed black and embedded with electronics is played by Seth Parker Woods and translated into sound by composer Spencer Topel, paying tribute to an avant-garde past while reflecting on the black bodies lost to mental illness and violence in the African American community.

Power to the People is presented in collaboration with the California African American Museum. Additional partners include American Cinematheque, A Noise Within, and Power California.
