...walk into an art performance space. 60 minutes later only one walks out.
Three guesses which one. Ok...so this is supposed to be art?
ACCIDENS explores one of the foundational themes of western drama: Boy meets lobster.
You all know the story: Boy meets lobster. Boy suspends lobster from microphone cable hanging from ceiling. Boy smokes small cigar, douses lobster with water, rubber bands from lobster's claws, removes lobster from cable, places lobster on butcher's block, hacks lobster to pieces with large cleaver, places lobster on flat grill, uncorks bottle of white wine, pours glass, and enjoys pensively while lobster's dismembered body parts jerk sporadically on grill. Boy eats lobster.
Yes, it's performed in front of a live paying audience. I like to think I have a fairly liberal interpretation of art, but this...maybe I just don't get it.
