Featuring multiple live performances and workshops every day, ChamberQUEER 2024: Constellation runs Tuesday, June 11 through Sunday, June 16 at MITU580.


Eric Umble and Tori Cheah present a long-duration piece for clarinet and electronics installed in the theater that will foster a welcoming communal space and allow audiences a meditative, come-and-go-as-you-are experience. The evening will evolve into a disco dance party DJ’ed by Eric beginning around 8:30 PM.
