Photo Flash: The Brick Presents GIT ALONG LIL DOGGIES
Brokeback Mountain meets Naked Lunch in Laboratory Theater's newest work: a meditative, cowboy dance-drama about the spiritual imprint of the windswept landscape of the American west. In an impressionistic narrative drawn from a variety of sources, two outlaws on the trail of an old adversary take work as jewel thieves for a washed up brothel madam. In a chance encounter with a traveling magician, they locate their enemy and conjure the violent forces of nature through sex-magic to take revenge.
GIT ALONG LIL DOGGIES commingles elements of William S. Burroughs' novel "The Place of Dead Roads", with short stories by Annie Proulx, country-western line dance, and gay pornography. The performance unfolds against a projected video landscape of repainted Marlboro cigarette TV commercials and within an immersive soundscape incorporating country-western recordings from the 1920's-30's and contemporary new age music for pedal steel guitar.
Directed by Yvan Greenberg, with Corey Dargel, Sheila Donovan, Oleg Dubson, and Wil Smith.
