Surveillance Punishment and the Black Psyche by M Lamar

  Friday, May 8th - 8:30PM – Surveillance Punishment and the Black Psyche by M Lamar at THE GLEASON ROOM BACKSTAGE AT THE FILLMORE MIAMI (1700 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach)

~ M Lamar works across opera, metal, performance, video, and sculpture to craft sprawling narratives of racial and sexual transformation. This music theater piece for countertenor and piano emerges from the constant violent and sexualized surveillance of the black male body—plantation overseer, the NBA, police executions of unarmed black men, the United States penal system. Utilizing multiple live and prerecorded camera feeds, this plantation fantasy explores surveillance from the point of view of a black man condemned to death for the murder of his male overseer with whom he has fallen in love. The work plunges to extreme depths of interracial desire within our interracial culture and history. The text for Surveillance Punishment and the Black Psyche is written by M. Lamar, with additional text by Tucker Culbertson. Music is written by M. Lamar, with art design and live video by Sabin Calvert.

“M Lamar plumbs the depths of all-American trauma with visionary verve.” ~ The New York Times
