Princess Performance at 21c Bentonville
May 27 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Princess @1minworld to premiere at 21c Museum Hotels!
@1minworld (One Minute World) is a video song cycle that features original animations and live performance. The music is performed live alongside the video projection. With intentionally brief one-minute video songs, @1minworld ‘s primary-colored bubblegum visuals contrast the songs’ content which explore the discontents of our social media age: filter bubbles, surveillance capitalism, and shortened attention spans, to name a few.
Tour Trailer: @1minworld Princess is currently planning a series of live premiere performances of @1minworld for 2023-2024 beginning at the Andy Warhol Museum on May 20, 2022 and continuing at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, MCA Denver, and all nine 21c Museum Hotel locations. This program is free and open to the public.
Princess (Alexis Gideon and Michael O’Neill) is a queer interdisciplinary performing arts duo that uses music as the narrative basis for their conceptual, visually dynamic video operas. Their blending of genre and medium exemplifies their ethos of fluidity; once society embraces the full gradient of Identity, the richer, healthier and more beautiful the world will be. Their work often examines social and political issues, striving to understand what it means to be human in the frenetic and fragmented modern age, often through a self-reflective humorous lens. Princess has been part of art and music communities since 1999, from early DIY queer music scenes in Chicago to internationally renowned museums.
