Double Feature: Anatomy of a Burlesque Outside the Box and For Love of Country - 2019 Asheville Fringe Arts Festival
Anatomy of a Burlesque Outside the Box
presented by Polymorphous Peepshow
Summoning themes of Sumerian and Greek mythology, archetypes, and modern iconographic identities, Anatomy of a Burlesque employs dance and theatrical bawdiness in a playful and serious post-modern exploration of self-actualization in this interactive piece. Inhabiting the genres of vaudeville and Burlesque Theater, this performance piece utilizes multiple performers and includes adult themes of eroticism, aging and death, sadomasochism, and incorporates live music and vocal accompaniment.
For Love of Country
presented by Perspective Collective
Two patriots, whose mission is to protect American values and liberties, face off about the cause of their dying influence on the public. In their desperation to regain prominence, they turn to a seductive foreign agent who promises wealth and power. As they pursue her, will they lose touch with the very values they had cherished? A meditation on the price of winning at any cost, inspired by the true story of a Russian spy who infiltrated American politics.
