Andy Warhol’s DRELLA

Presented by ‘the feath3r theory,’ and in part by Dance New Amsterdam, comes the world premiere of the performance ‘Andy Warhol’s DRELLA (I love you Faye Driscoll).’ It’s a “movement-based drag performance essay inspired by Andy Warhol’s alter ego ‘Drella’ — a contraction of Dracula and Cinderella, envisioned by Warhol Superstar Ondine.” I heard from François Leloup-Collet, who’s assisting the main coordinator of the event, artist Raja Feather Kelly, that he’s obsessed with Warhol and has been working on it for about a year now. This performance is mainly about Warhol but also about Raja’s “obsessions with self-worth, sexual identity, race, gender-bending, mind-fucking, consumer culture, celeb worship…” In other words a very pleasant Thursday night filled with drag, smashing vogue, cabaret and ballet.

$20, 7:30PM, The Invisible Dog, 51 Bergen St. Brooklyn, NY.
