In Anger/Nation you will be told:
how they smashed!
why they smashed!
how you may smash!
And how you may get smashed!
ANGER/NATION explores the contradictory puritanical and hedonistic underpinnings of the American psyche by colliding the psychedelic aesthetic of occult filmmaker Kenneth Anger with the histrionic escapades of the self-proclaimed “America’s Loving Home Defender,” Carry A. Nation — a remarkable 19th century, hatchet-wielding temperance crusader. Using miniature floating video monitors, post-it notes, licorice, and a healthy dose of fairy dust, Radiohole conjures a “pleasuredome” populated by an unpredictable mélange of questionable characters ranging from random Roman centurions to male cherubs that force Carry A. Nation to wield her hatchet against sin and degradation — only to then find herself in the grips of a voluptuous spiritual transformation of her own.
Co-commissioned by the Kitchen, the donaufestival, and the Noorderzon Festival, ANGER/NATION is created by Radiohole and performed in the traditional style by company members Eric Dyer, Scott Halvorsen Gillette, and Maggie Hoffman with special guest star Iver Findlay. Video design by Iver Findlay, So Yong Kim and Radiohole.
