THE QUBE CHIX
The Qube Chix is an
eclectic trio (choreographer/ movement artist Leigh Evans, composer/performance
artist Pamela Z and vocalist/performance artist Julie
Queen) working in a variety of media spanning from interdisciplinary experimental
theater to avant-cabaret music. Their performances are an explosion of aural
and visual textures combining classically trained voices, Asian influenced movement
forms, new music composition and electronic processing with a theater of imagery.
Slow motion movement compliments 16mm black and white film in an entrancing
integration of live and cinematic motion.
They have also performed
as a new music vocal ensemble and a 5 piece club ensemble with percussionist
J Why and bassist/clarinetist Hillary Maroon (aka Medusa Twist). The Qube Chix
have performed in theaters, performance galleries and night clubs in San Francisco
since 1991 including appearances at Life on the Water, Club DNA, Theater Artaud,
and Laney College Theatre. They have been featured on KQED's "West Coast Weekend"
and KPFA's Morning Concert. They have received grants from the LEF foundation,
The Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation and Dance Bay Area. In 1993 they appeared at
The Knitting Factory and CBGB's Gallery in New York City and at theaters and
galleries in Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Nebraska.
The Qube Chix developed their first
multi-disciplinary performance work Stich-tche-na-ko in
collaboration with filmmaker Paul Lundahl and Harpist Barbara Imhoff, which
premiered at Theater Artaud in San Francisco in December of 1991. They have
since developed segments of an interdisciplinary work Circle of Bone during
residencies at Yellow Springs Institute in Pennsylvania and at the University
of Nebraska's Experimental Black Box Theater in Omaha. The Qube Chix are known
for having left a trail of bald (and partially bald) men in their wake due to
the shaving activity that occurs during live performances of Bald
A studio recording of this song appears
on a CD compilation of women composers called DICE
on the Ishtar label.
