Mabel Kwan - Piano

Chicago-based, Austin-born pianist Mabel Kwan performs with Ensemble Dal Niente, Restroy, big TEEN's Mega Laverne and Shirley, and Uluuul. She is fascinated by sound, contradictions, and what we perceive to be familiar or strange. With a style that is detached and objective but highly personal, Mabel brings a quiet intensity and playfulness to her live performances. The 2018-2019 season includes performances in Minneapolis, Montreal, Mexico City, and the release of the first complete recording of G. F. Haas' Trois Hommages for two pianos tuned a quarter tone apart. She is a High Concept Labs 2018 Sponsored Artist along with Sara Zalek and Sivan Cohen Elias. Together they will create an opera/dance/theater hybrid work informed by the theme of secrets.
