Karras Performance Co-op, formerly known as Flak, is dedicated to the creation of new performance works through highly synthesized and reciprocal cross-disciplinary collaborations. Karras engages performance as a compound vision of multiple artists with the objective of understanding the core perspectives of others and how this translates creatively into a unified work. The organization is co-operated by Chicago-based composer/artist Shawn Lucas and clarinetist Emily Beisel, whom work the project as curators, creators, and performers. This core duo represents a strong but permeable creative foundation that is capable of assimilating the artistic expression of others.
