Sanford Biggers: Moon Medicin

Target Free Thursdays
David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center, Frieda and Roy Furman Stage
Moon Medicin is undoubtedly performance art—representing thoroughly for Performa ’07—and it is also theater, testimony, sculpture, painting, fashion, and music. But mostly, it’s Funk. The dream child of visual artist and keyboardist Sanford Biggers, this combination of players—percussionist Swiss Chris, Martin Luther on lead guitar and lead vocals, the singing turntablist Jahi Sundance, and Mark Hines, the bassist with live video tendencies—convene to concoct a fuel elixir for inter-dimensional travel and perceptual shifts. With a carefully curated selection of covers and original compositions by Biggers, Sundance, and Martin, Moon Medicin is often joined by an evolving cast of creatives such as the sublime Imani Uzuri and Sumie Kaneko.
