Join us for a work-in-process showing of Root Cause: Black American Circus by 2022/23 BRIClab Performing Arts resident Cleo Reed.
“Root Cause: Black American Circus” is a self-produced musical project. Cleo guides us through their narrative driven, pre-performance of their debut album while integrating the aesthetics and movement of 20th-century circus performance.

About the artist
Raised in New York City and Washington, D.C., Cleo Reed is a student of Black underground sound and intention. They reach deeply into their own lineage and use it as a reference in both music and multimedia art. They produce and design soundscapes, compositional and popular music works, in addition to mixing, mastering, and editing their own music and visuals. Through music, Cleo works to amplify the needed presence of Black queer women in production and sound design spaces. They are a recent graduate of Berklee College of Music and are currently finishing their debut album “Root Cause,” which will be released this year. Recent collaborators include Jon Batiste, Nick Hakim, and more.
