Event Description

“In Moore’s re-reading, sex is a decidedly martial, rather than marital, art.” – Bill Raden, StageRaw

Lulu is an ongoing multi-platform performance adaptation of the 1895 Frank Wedekind Lulu play.

Moore, Toonkel and Shank adapted the play and, in collaboration with the performers, distilled it into episodic performances that are simultaneously autobiographical, pedestrian and theatrical. Each performance invited male-identified audiences into the bedrooms of women across Los Angeles in an exploration of sexuality, intimacy and domestic locations and functioned as a staged photo shoot, with Shank’s photographs creating narrative photo-documentation that further explores the male gaze.

The LAX Festival will host the artists for a week-long residency and open studio at Automata, opening doors to the full series of episodic performances in a gallery setting.
