Description

PopRally, in conjunction with MoMA PS1's Saturday Sessions, invites you to the three-night debut performances of BENT by SSION. Playing a selection of songs from the new album BENT, SSION’s loosely narrative spectacle—incorporating video backdrops, costumes, and props—touches on subjects from riot grrrl party anthems about dieting and dying in LA to having a hit record in purgatory and creating an underwater dance club. Various collaborators will make guest appearances.

SSION, created and led by Cody Critcheloe, is a continuously mutating Kansas City–based music and performance collective. Through the mediums of music video and live performance, the group focuses on visuals, theatrics, and music that blur the lines of fantasy and reality.

Saturday Sessions is a program of events designed to introduce wide-ranging directions in performance. The experimental program is structured around collaboration and focuses on engaging MoMA PS1 visitors in a unique experience.

The performance will begin at 9:30 p.m. each night. Admission includes the SSION performance and a cocktail reception.
