Event description: “Beautiful Trouble” is a 5-act live performance by Natacha Diels and JACK Quartet about simplicity and beauty. Each act (or episode) describes a particular mini-plot in the style of television’s “The Twilight Zone” or Robert Ashley’s TV opera “Perfect Lives.”

The oversaturation of our current era is the driving force behind “Beautiful Trouble’s” focus on simple human beauty. The work is representative of The New Discipline, a practice of contemporary art influenced by Fluxus, Dada, the Uncanny Valley, and the social impact of ubiquitous cameras. It incorporates narrative, video, staging, and choreography to craft social commentary.

“Beautiful Trouble” creates a tangible and understandable human moment through the power of performance, both heard and seen.
