Hear Here
Maggie Bergeron & Company, along with musician Nicholas Gaudette, is presenting Hear Here 2017! A Live Music and Movement Festival August 5, 2017 at The Cedar Cultural Center in Minneapolis, MN. The central theme of this festival is collaboration, as we celebrate and investigate the specific nature of the intersection and overlap of sound and movement. This pairing has a long history and vibrant life in the Twin Cities, and this festival is devoted to just this overlap of artists and communities. Join us to share and discuss three works by multi-generational teams of composer/musicians and choreographer/dancers!

Sharon Picasso studied acting and Psychology at the University of Minnesota-Duluth and earned a degree in Dance Performance and Choreography from The Boston Conservatory.
Queen Drea
Queen Drea
Queen Drea Voice-Loops N Effects is a vocalist, sound designer and performance artist who creates conceptual soundscapes. By applying a poetic and often metaphorical language to her lyrics and compositions, she tries to approach a wide scale of subjects in a multi-layered way and likes to involve the audience in conversation as they accompany her on her musical journey. Her performances directly respond to the surrounding environment and uses everyday experiences from the artist as a starting point. Often these are framed instances that would go unnoticed in their original context. With a conceptual approach, her work references love, pain, the feeling of not being “enough as a form of resistance against the "Normalcy" box people want to put her in.

Nick Gaudette
Nick Gaudette
Virtuosic bass pioneer Nick Gaudette picked up a cello tuned as a bass at age 5 and has continued playing classical and non-classical music ever since. After completing a BM and MM at Cleveland Institute of Music, Nick helped found the chamber music fiddle project The Orange Mighty Trio, where he plays mostly with the bow, treating the instrument like a large violin. Nick is also a co-director of the multi-generational musician based ensemble, The Cherry Spoon Collective, which is a roster of some of the finest musicians / composers / new music players in the Twin Cities Community. During the school year, Nick is the Orchestra Director at Edina High School.
Margaret Ogas
Margaret Ogas
Margaret Ogas was born in Milwaukee, WI and started dancing at a young age. She graduated from Milwaukee High School of the Arts where she trained in ballet, modern, and jazz under the direction of Sandra Jordan and Dean Drews. Margaret is entering her senior year at the University of Minnesota, where she will complete a BFA in Dance. At the U, she has had the pleasure of being involved in works by Martha Graham, Garth Fagan, Carl Flink, Rosy Simas, and Luciana Achugar. In addition to dance, Margaret has focused on gender and ethnic studies. She combines her creative and scholarly interests by analyzing art and performance through a critical lens, investigating the role of art in social justice, and transmitting her research into creative expression. Margaret’s choreographic voice is driven by storytelling and shaped by personal experiences. She uses playful narratives, layered soundscapes and funky movement textures to create vivid characters in a surreal urban environment.
Ivan Cunningham

Trained in the traditions of jazz, Ivan is drawn to all forms of improvisational music, and is interested in exploring methods of composition that create spaces for reactionary improvisation. Ivan is a recent graduate of Perpich Arts High School, and will be attending the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire to study music performance and composition.
