Monica Julianna Mirabile
b. Clearwater Beach, FL 1988
Monica is an artist and choreographer working in relational choreo-politics. She is known for her work in FlucT with Sigrid Lauren, together they dissect how the body absorbs information under capitalism through aggressive channel changing dance. Her choreographed installations often break through the expectations of dance and enter into an interruptive discomfort while sometimes leading up to 150 performers as seen in her role as Co-Director of Authority Figure. Since graduating with a BFA in Interdisciplinary Sculpture at MICA, Mirabile’s provocative performances have been seen in numerous galleries and museums including Andrea Rosen Gallery, ICA Philadelphia, The Guggenheim, The Queens Museum and MOMA Ps1. Her work is in the permanent collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art and has been reviewed in Art in America, Mask Magazine, ARTnews, Fader, and Purple Magazine among others. She Founded Otion Front Studio in 2014, an experimental performance and rehearsal studio in Bushwick (now co-run with six other artists), is a partner in the latest iteration of SPR and bartends at HappyFun Hideaway.
