The Eulipia/Knot Frum Hear Performance/Salon seeks to explore alternative spaces within the diasporic spectrum through performance, sound, and sight. With a focus on lo-tech, neo-primitive/paleo-sophisticate, and invention outside the realms of conventional and mainstream expression, Eulipia becomes a destination for avant garde artists who revel in the collision of past, present and future, steel and wood, circuitry and artery, howl and song.
