The Qube Chix is an eclectic trio (choreographer/ movement artist Leigh Evans, composer/performance artist Pamela Z and vocalist/performance artist Julie Queen) working in a variety of media spanning from interdisciplinary experimental theater to avant-cabaret music. Their performances are an explosion of aural and visual textures combining classically trained voices, Asian influenced movement forms, new music composition and electronic processing with a theater of imagery. Slow motion movement compliments 16mm black and white film in an entrancing integration of live and cinematic motion.

They have also performed as a new music vocal ensemble and a 5 piece club ensemble with percussionist J Why and bassist/clarinetist Hillary Maroon (aka Medusa Twist). The Qube Chix have performed in theaters, performance galleries and night clubs in San Francisco since 1991 including appearances at Life on the Water, Club DNA, Theater Artaud, and Laney College Theatre. They have been featured on KQED's "West Coast Weekend" and KPFA's Morning Concert. They have received grants from the LEF foundation, The Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation and Dance Bay Area. In 1993 they appeared at The Knitting Factory and CBGB's Gallery in New York City and at theaters and galleries in Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Nebraska.
The Qube Chix developed their first multi-disciplinary performance work Stich-tche-na-ko in collaboration with filmmaker Paul Lundahl and Harpist Barbara Imhoff, which premiered at Theater Artaud in San Francisco in December of 1991. They have since developed segments of an interdisciplinary work Circle of Bone during residencies at Yellow Springs Institute in Pennsylvania and at the University of Nebraska's Experimental Black Box Theater in Omaha. The Qube Chix are known for having left a trail of bald (and partially bald) men in their wake due to the shaving activity that occurs during live performances of
Bald Boyfriend. A studio recording of this song appears on a CD compilation of women composers called DICE on the Ishtar label.
