Swirve is a Dallas music, spoken word and experimental performance ensemble featuring Tamitha Curiel, Chris Curiel and Gerard Bendiks. The members have been known to play the trumpet backwards, the drums upside-down, and shout sideways. They have performed in galleries, nightclubs, festivals and bbqs. They have also collaborated with many of Dallas’s other fine artists, including Tammy Gomez, Mad Swirl. Alison Starr, Kenny Withrow, and members of Yells at Eels.
In conjunction with his “Artifacts of the Imagination” exhibition opening at Mighty Fine Arts, Matt Bagley joins spoken word/music group Swirve as a special guest to present his rock operetta on SpaceBugRobot Wars at WordSpace. Swamp Daddy Matt Bagley has returned from his interstellar teleportation travels back to the earthly realm with tales of remote universes and cosmic dramas. He brings back stories of his encounters with sentient robots and trained insects and exotic space critters that suffer ordeals not unlike those those in the bayou. The artifacts he returns with bear witness to the universality of being, life in space and earth, couched in metaphor and imagination.
