Augmented Human and Substitute Recess Teacher QRS*** led pupils on a Satirical, Dystopian, Gender-querying Time-Travel Tour of art exhibit SHE/THEY 2018 at Area 31, Frederick, MD
It was a pleasure to perform a site-specific satirical monologue as part of SHE/THEY 2018! Thanks to the folks at the space Area 31, the SHE/THEY organizers, all the people who supported local art, and everyone who donated to Heartly House. Visual art will hang in the space for the rest of February. If you didn’t get a chance to swing by during Frederick’s Fire & Ice, toodle down the alley this Saturday and check it out.
Recess is about to begin! A rollicking, incisive journey into the alien past! Back to the year 2018! And a mysterious phenomenon called the “She/They” art show! (Jillian McMasters, photo. Edit: Hadfield)
“This week, The Annual offered Annual reader Chuck Moulder, retired community college professor, Rolling Stone subscriber and armchair musicologist, the opportunity to choose our The Christmas Song of the Week. We caught up with Chuck in his Frederick, Maryland home to listen to, and discuss his choice.”
You may not have made it to this past Sunday’s The Last Hurrah, where I served on the panel and made a character appearance as a certain Patriotism expert…But that’s okay! You still have a chance to catch up on the madness.
Available on iTunes. Episode 82 will be up and streaming in no time. Don’t wait to subscribe! Do it now.
The Last Hurrah is a free comedy and variety show, hosted at the Maryland Ensemble Theatre in Frederick, MD.
Episode 82 was hosted by guest host Christine McQuaid. Thom Huenger accompanied on keyboard and contributed to the Hurrah Panel. A rousing Independence Trivia Game was played with two lucky members of the audience. A redoubtable Patriotism expert arrived to weigh in on patriotic, unpatriotic and dangerously patriotic behavior as well.
Hadfield wrote the story as a stage play. It was read aloud Dec. 2015 on The Last Hurrah variety show & podcast. However, the Krimby Tales were not yet finished shape-shifting. Mr. Kevin Cole, (see ‘Who?‘) intuited the Tales’ true form. “I think it would make a pretty cool holiday shortfilm. Maybe look into having the stories animated in various fashions. I don’t know,”spake the Kev. His excitement was palpable. Emails! Abra Kadabra! Wheedling! Wrangling! Presto! Magic! Krimby! With one talented animator on board, and a professional production company willing to play, the necessary team members soon fell under the Krimby spell. Scrawled snark from once upon a time transfigured into an interdisciplinary artistic extravaganza which we encourage you to support today. Krimby Tales.
