About

Last April, composer Jennifer Bewerse mailed feminist violin duo, The Furies, a piece written on a repurposed wedding thank you card. In it, she asks them to tell stories of “a blossom, blooming, or the color red” while beating their chests. For this month’s performance video, The Furies premiere Jennifer’s Bloom between two arrangements of songs from Brazilian composer Jocy de Oliveira’s subversive first album “A Música Século XX de Jocy” (Jocy’s Twentieth Century Music). A pioneer storyteller, Oliveira’s avant-garde Bossa Nova transforms the Brazilian muse—beautiful, young, and rich—into a full person by humanizing by her mortality. To deepen the storytelling,  MFYI commissioned an art print postcard from Yasmine Nasser Diaz, a multidisciplinary artist whose practice navigates overlapping tensions around religion, gender, and third-culture identity.
