About The Residency Group

  • Year

  • Spring 2020
  • Venue

  • San Diego International Airport
  • Description

  • Beck+Col are a Los Angeles based artist duo whose work has been exhibited worldwide. Through costume-based performance, Beck+Col’s work explores alternate universes populated with monsters. Their Lumpen Monsters are colorful, playful and operatic. For the duration of their residency, these lumpy, musical monsters from an alternate universe will descend upon SAN. Only able to communicate through friendly exaggerated gestures and operatic vocalizations, the monsters interact with travelers passing through the airport, engaging them in an aural and visual spectacle. It is a multidisciplinary experience; combining wearable sculpture, performance, dance, and music and live operatic vocalizations.
