Vibrating voices and moving bodies create an experience that is deeply human, magical, healing and psychedelic. Constellation Chor is a philosophy; vocal improvisation and performance practice; and performing ensemble comprising composers, singers, dancers, and actors, founded by Marisa Michelson. Engaging at the intersection of singing, movement, Deep Listening, and music-theatre, the Chor simultaneously practices fierce individuality and radical surrender to group consciousness. Described by The New Yorker as “visceral and committed” and by The New York Times as “astringently captivating,” the ensemble performs interdisciplinary pieces composed by Michelson, as well as collaborating with other composers, choreographers, directors, and mindfulness practitioners.
Band members include Marisa Michelson, Chad Goodridge, Kalli Siamidou, Tamrin Goldberg, Luisa Muhr, Chanan Ben Simon, Chaesong Kim, Jen Anaya, Shawn Shafner, Nikko Benson, Heathcliff Saunders, and Raphael Sacks.
