The Hollywood Adriana: A Cautionary Tale of Damaged Good
January 23 | 7:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Phillip J. Ammonds (Trinity Rayn, The Drag Poet), curator of Rainbows Across the Diaspora, The Queer Text Reading Series at Dixon place, presents Tadeusz von Moltke (NBC’s The Blacklist; DJ Khaled/ Jay Z’s video “I Got the Keys”) in the first public performance of selections from The Hollywood Adriana: A Cautionary Tale of Damaged Good.
The Hollywood Adriana is an experiment in form. “Dimensional Fiction” designed to be performed, it is a tragi-comedy in a kaleidoscope of styles – prose, poetry, screenplay, opera libretto; a modern-day story of obsession, sex, love, murder, innocence lost, and catharsis. Silent film, ballet, and opera converge in the surreal world populated by the protagonists, with surprise visits from Sarah Bernhardt, Ramon Novarro, Rosa Ponselle, Hector Berlioz, hustlers, drag queens, and altar boys.
Brilliant and provocative artist/activist Linda LaBeija shares the programme with Tadeusz von Moltke, presenting her most recent work.
