Cellista is a Los Angeles based cellist and performance artist whose work emphasizes narrative, multimedia, and cross-genre collaborations. Her latest composition is Pariah — an immersive audio album that fluidly weaves together classical, pop, and hip-hop elements to create a new dialect. The self-released operetta, presented as an album and live dance film, takes the listener on a journey through Pariah’s banishment from Cloture, a fictional city whose residents punish Pariah for her passion for truth and justice.
The event begins with an overture by noisepoetnobody followed by LA’s Zero Collective. A prologue performance of moody noise covers by Joshua Icban and Cellista precedes Pariah.
