Tour poster by the amazing Lucy Drury. In her own words: “The poster’s been on tour too, on top of a mountain, by a dried up creek in the canyons, under the full moon. I found thin sheets of wood and burned the band names with the sun and there are some flowers collaged on from the mountain she was built on.”

Edited video from “The Hyena Debutante Comes Out!” May 5, 2017 show at Adobe Records!

This is a shortened video that was used as part of The Hyena Debutante Comes Out! live theater performance. The video is brainchild of Elizabeth Costello (dancing, talking, paper mache and pickled onion) and Sheila Bosco (dancing, talking, video, music).

Information:

LIVE THEATER: The Hyena Debutante Comes Out!
Adobe Books, Mission, San Francisco
Sunday, April 30, 2017
7:00pm 10:00pm

The Hyena Debutante Comes Out is an interactive ritual musical theatre experience honoring the centennial of Leonora Carrington’s birth.

The poles unfold and time collapses into a cauldron of wild, steaming, snorting wonder as a cackling, fluttering herd of beasts arises to celebrate the feminine glory of our beloved Ancestress, Leonora Carrington.

Leonora Carrington (1917-2011) was hailed as an important Surrealist, though she rejected that label herself and did whatever she damn well pleased. She painted, wrote, sculpted, and produced theatre pieces exploring the themes of alchemy, spiritualism, mythology, and nature—with astonishing delicacy, profound attention to detail, and a wicked grin. During her life she was banished from her aristocratic family in England, fled to Southern France with Max Ernst, escaped torture and madness in Spain, and then found a final home and family in Mexico City. Throughout her days, Leonora startled, enchanted, and illuminated all in her path.

Participants: Alice Cohen, Christine Shields, Gabrielle Ekedal, Jaina Bee,
Jennyb the Shady Lady, Linda Goldie Hagood, Liz Costello, Sasha Petrenko, Sheila Bosco

Please arrive by 7:30 to witness the invocation.
