Dan Green/ Institute for Aesthetic Modulation

With his wife and performance partner Alicia Mikles, Dan Green participated in the 2013 Free City, performing Destroyed Monster, based on a Japanese Noh play in which a monster’s ghost tells a traveler of its demise. The narrative is conveyed through movement and narration, heavily influenced by Greek classical theater, Commedia del Arte, and Noh theater, with costumes and set designed from junked auto parts. Institute for Aesthetic Modulation (IFAM), directed by Dan Green, creates works that are sculpture and performance at the same time. Green manipulates keyboards and phone cords and crab shells into costumes that are easily anthropomorphized. He is a passionate maker, and a skilled and successful educator.
