No Longer Showing.
Since 2006, Neal Medlyn has been creating a seven-show performance series in which each piece is built around a pop star or iconic group, from Lionel Richie and Miley Cyrus to the Insane Clown Posse. The finale of this series, King, is built around Michael Jackson — containing radically rethought versions of his music, intuitively-related source material in sculpture and costume, as well as considerations of Medlyn's personal and artistic trajectory of the past several years. King is about epic attempts.
Costumes: Larry Krone
Sculpture: Fawn Krieger
Video Design: Matt Romein
Musical Director: Matt Ray
Concurrent with the run of King, there will also be an exhibit of video, art, ephemera and related work from all seven shows in Medlyn’s Pop Star Series on view in The Kitchen’s theater on Oct. 24-26. 2-6pm. FREE
Medlyn and collaborators will lead walk-throughs of the exhibit as follows:
Neal Medlyn: Oct. 24, 5pm
Fawn Kreiger, Larry Krone, Matthew Lyons: Oct. 25, 5pm
Farris Craddock: Oct. 26, 5pm
Neal Medlyn: King is made possible with support from The Fan Fox and Leslie R. Samuels Foundation, Joseph and Joan Cullman Foundation for the Arts, and with public funds from New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
