This epic new work by the seminal artist is a feature-length musical examining American subcultures through the restaging of carnivalesque productions intermixed into a meandering narrative. Each reconstruction is a live-action scene extrapolated from photographs found in high school yearbooks and investigates the pageantry around dress-up days, religious spectacles, fashion shows, singles’ mixers and musical follies. Described by The LA Weekly as “The Lawrence Welk show crossed with a Busby Berkeley musical,” Kelley disrupts traditional structures of such events to construct a dizzying daisy chain of performances. The result is a landscape populated by dancing Goths, singing vampires, hick storytellers, horse dancers and the Virgin Mary. Written and directed by Mike Kelley, with original music by Kelley and Scott Benzel, and choreography by Kate Foley.
