Entertainment by Dan Graham and Tony Oursler Featuring Japanther and the Huber Marionettes
“Punch and Judy meets the Who.” —New York Times
After instigating teenage riots to change the voting age to 14 and dosing Congress with LSD, 24-year-old rock singer Neil Sky is elected president. In this multimedia puppet-theater rock-opera (based on the 1968 exploitation film Wild in the Streets), which sharply satirizes the hippie generation and the end of the psychedelic era, an idealistic movement left unchecked becomes the same fascistic tidal wave its young protagonists fight against so unstintingly. Experience the McGuire stage transformed into an intimate 120-seat puppet-theater installation conceived by conceptual artist Dan Graham with videos by artist Tony Oursler. Features live music by post-punk duo Japanther and marionettes by Phillip Huber (Being John Malkovich).
