Zipperhead, a multimedia event
A Show Grows in Brooklyn- Live Multimedia Event, Zipperhead, Opens at the 17 Frost Art and Performance Space on April 10, 2010.
Following a successful one night preview of Zipperhead in September 2009 at Monkeytown, the show will open for a six consecutive weekend run at the 17 Frost Art and Performance Space in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. In the words of Michael Cesarczyk, writer for the Greenpoint Gazzette, "Zipperhead is a spellbinding musical and visual exploration of post-9/11 America by progressive rockers Sineparade and artist Alex Itin. Wonderfully provocative and original."
The strory begins on 9/11 when Andrew Sarchus, a prominent Wall Street Trader, escapes death in the World Trade Center by stealing away to a hotel room with his secretary. His wife Marla's anger quickly turns to concern as his behavior becomes progressively more erratic, the result of a growing brain tumor. The show explores the fine line between behavior and disordered behavior resulting from brain disease, as well as contemporary greed, forgiveness and love in the first decade of our new century in New York City. Surrounded by three massive screens, the performers and audience are enveloped in the video and animations of Mr. Itin. The narrations are backed by the original soundscapes of Sineparade and in return, the band's songs are supported by Itin's iconic videos and animations.
Show opens April 10th and plays each Saturday evening at 8PM until May 15th (running time 75 minutes). Tickets and additional information available at:
