Another Fucking Warhol Production or Who's Afraid of Andy Warhol? is a 2017 American docufiction performance, which will premiere as part of Lumberyard in The City. Directed by Raja Feather Kelly, recipient of the 2016 Solange MacArthur Award for New Choreography, the performance stars Kelly and his company as themselves performing a post-ballet theatre musical that reimagines and attempts to re-create the unrecorded, deleted and lost footage from Saturday Night Live's 2015 Episode on Love and War (The Love Episode). Featuring musical guest Kanye West. The cast also includes Amy Gernux, Sara Gurevich, Rachel Pritzlaff, Collin Ranf, Aaron Moses Robin, Benjamin Wolk and Aitor Mendilibar as the camera man. Lighting Design by Tuce Yasak, Video by Laura Snow, Photography by Kate Enman and Sound Design by Emily Auciello.
FULL TITLE: the feath3r theory presents: Andy Warhol's TROPICO or Zeitgeist - the fall of man, the age of desire, Adam and Steve in the Rite of Spring, Lana Del Rey's 'It's Always Everything' staring Allen Ginsberg as William Shakespeare or the greatest story (of survival) ever told.
TROPICO is Loosely-inspired by Lana Del Rey’s short film of a similar name and explores Raja Feather Kelly’s relationship to pop-culture as he attempts to demystify, through dance and theater, pop-culture’s relationship to humanity. TROPICO is about beginnings, endings, truths, illusions and how to live in the world when you feel so far outside of it.
TROPICO is a graphic-novel conceived and written by raja feather kelly and a live dance-theater production performed by the feath3r theory.
Andy Warhol said, “It’s the movies that have really been running things in America ever since they were invented. They show you what to do, how to do it, when to do it, how to feel about it, and how to look how you feel about it.” TROPICO questions if this is true.
The Grand Paradise is an ongoing immersive theater experience in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Shows run Thursday-Sunday at 7:00pm with additional 10:30 shows on Fridays and Saturdays. Now extended through December, 2016!
