FK Alexander: Livestream Viewing Party in Detroit

UMS will host a livestream party at Light Box Performance Space in Detroit for FK Alexander’s powerful performance art piece (I Could Go on Singing) Over the Rainbow. Admission is free and open to the public.

Based in Glasgow, FK Alexander is a performance artist whose work is concerned with issues of wounds, recovery, aggressive healing, radical wellness, industrialization, and noise music, an “outsider music” that still exists on the fringe. Her work endeavors to create a therapeutic space through ritual, inviting others to join her in a very personal experience. Judy Garland sang “Over the Rainbow” for the last time four months before her untimely death. In a unique individual moment of undivided love and attention, FK Alexander takes hand of self-selecting live audience members, fixes her gaze, and sings to them alongside a distorted recording of that very rendition, played through a wall of noise by the abrasive Glasgow-based noise band Okishima Island Tourist Association.
