In this show, the company attempts to re-create the unrecorded, deleted, and lost footage from Saturday Night Live’s 2015 episode on Love and War, featuring Ballet Dancers and musical guest Kanye West a The performance is in three parts: a one-hundred day visual campaign [check it out!] , a live reality-theatre performance at The Kitchen in NYC, and (of course) the screening of the episode itself. The live show will recreate the experience of an SNL dress rehearsal. From this we’ll make the never-before-seen Episode that will be live-streamed through the feath3r theory website 2 hours after the show ends and is only available to the audience that was present for the recording and you, our backers!

The purpose of this is to reveal how pop-culture is created; to literally realize our relationship to it. You participate, you collaborate, you corroborate, YOU make ME. 


WHY THIS SHOW 

As an (involuntary) Millennial, as well as a gay black man, one of my closest relationships is the one I have with pop-culture.  In a post-Warhol, post-modern, post-Obama, post-election culture, I find myself in constant crisis. The content of the episode can be summarized as LOVE and WAR – the war on love, in a time of war what is love and what’s it’s purpose? What is real and what is not? How did we come to this?  

ABOUT THE FEATH3R THEORY 

the feath3r theory is a dance-theatre company with a reputation for theatrically restaging fiction historical and current events by abstracting these events into dance theatre. Our style of live-performance is like professional regional theatre meets a competition dance team at a sketch comedy club, and is participating in MTV’s The Real World as Cartoon Characters. We are characterized by our use of color to thwart the design of the body. We regurgitate pop-culture. My movement-based performances combine fashion show, gallery exhibition, drag, stand-up comedy, minstrel show, and stage-play into a single, overwhelming, over-saturated Gesamtkunstwerk— in which artists and audience alike experience their shared humanity. We bend, but don’t break, the specific formal rules of each genre we appropriate. We thus deconstruct each genre from within the genre’s own internal rules and contradictions. We love to play with duration. We attune ourselves to the audience’s six senses to creating a full immersive experience from beginning to end.

 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” and Another Fucking Warhol Production takes another fucking stab at asking if this is true.

Risks and challenges

We’ve only got 24 hours to raise $5,000

This is HUGE risk, we're asking people to join us and to help us do this so we can spend time making the project. There is still so much to do.

We simply want to pay people fair wages and fully realize our production. We have a lot of support coming in, but we've have fallen s little short.

We have a track record of putting on sold-out critically acclaimed work and we want to keep doing it. We believe art can change the world. But we need to world to help in reminding each other how much making art work and experiencing works of art are an important part of life. Art is at risk. Let's change that!

It’s a short window and if we don’t make it, we have to pare down our vision for Another Fucking Warhol Production.

You know what to do!
