The Demise of the Dodo is a punk rock psychedelic one act musical about the demise of the dodo bird. Premiering this May at the Sancho Gallery in Echo Park! It’s a show that speaks loudly to every person. A show that is mobile, cheap to produce and extremely entertaining. It has an original score that will be performed live. Large scale life like dodo birds. Psychedelic puppetry. Projections. Stop motion animation. Cutting edge makeup design. Sailboats. Drunken Sailors. Raw human emotion. Starbucks falling from the sky. God singing Opera. Blood, lots of Blood. Tasty Guts, Gore and DoDo death complete with a side of barbecue glazed spare ribs. All narrated by a lounge singer in a white tuxedo. At the generous and lovely Sancho Gallery in Echo Park. Were taking a whole new approach to lighting, set design, advertising, and seating. Redefining the way in which people see and experience theater. Street artist B.A.M.P. will create our flyer and oversee a aggressive wheat pasting advertising campaign. Posting his artwork, our flyer all over the streets of our home city Los Angeles. He also has created original artwork based on the play that he will show in the gallery as well. We plan to have a different band each week score our show live, and play a set of there own music before the show begins. After the show, DJ’s will spin all night embracing the festive spirit of theater and art.
We need help with the funding to get this movement started! We need materials to build our sets and costumes, supplies to create our flyers, and the assistance of a experienced stage manager and a recording technician to help us record our score. With the exploding development of the art and music scene in Los Angeles, and especially Echo Park, the time is now. The venues are available, and we believe that people are just waiting for a revival of one of the oldest forms of artistic expression to bring a new source of stimulation to their minds. The positive impact that a collaborative art such as theater can bring to our culture is vast and endless. Please help us create something important, enriching, and new. Any donation, $1 to $1,000 will help.
