The Institute for Interdisciplinary Innovation (I³) is a three year pilot project of the Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans (CAC), supported by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, designed to provide both the context and content for the expanding aesthetic landscape of interdisciplinary performance as practiced by artists whose projects are drawn from or inspired by the rich cultural traditions of the South. The CAC's I³ Southern Partners include Duke Performances, Fusebox, The Nasher Museum of Art, Oz Nashville, and Speed Art Museum.
The Contemporary Arts Center is a NPN Partner of the National Performance Network (NPN). This project is made possible in part by support from the NPN Performance Residency Program. Major contributors of NPN include the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, Ford Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts (a federal agency), the MetLife Foundation and the Nathan Cummings Foundation.

The Way at Midnight explores confrontations with losing and being lost from the colonial period through the digital age and incorporates theatrical performance, visual installation and live and recorded music. Directed by Joanna Russo, Mondo’s latest work is inspired by contemporary questions of migration and (dis)orientation.

Two performers—Hannah Pepper-Cunningham and Nick Slie bring humor and gravitas to their portrayals of seven distinct characters confronting their ancestry and looking towards an uncertain future. Framing the performance, visual artist Miwa Matreyek’s custom animations are projected onto four surfaces of the CAC warehouse, while composer Peter Bowling’s dynamic sound design and original compositions fill the auditory space.

Mondo Bizarro has been creating original, interdisciplinary performances and fostering creative partnerships in local, national and international communities since 2003. Working as an ensemble and developing projects over several years, their art inspires a deeper understanding of what makes us commonly human and individually unique.
