FlucT is a dance company founded by Sigrid Lauren and Monica Mirabile. Together and apart they are FlucT. Most recently, FlucT has been featured on the Fader, noting their partnership as "a personal philosophy that draws largely from their own experiences growing up," but also giving nod "to John Cage’s writing about the role of chance in art, movement therapist Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen’s teachings on the mind-body relationship, and the groundbreaking body of work of composer and choreographer Meredith Monk, who first rose to prominence in the late ‘60s."
