PPL’s Relational March

From Feb 28-March 31, 2014 PPL (Esther Neff and Brian McCorkle) + Future Death Toll (David Griess and Edward Sharp) will pile into a car with all of their art materials, a change of underwear each, and take their chances on the USA outside of NYC!

If you live near any of these places, they’d love to see you and possibly sleep on your floor.

Here are their tour dates as of 02/22/2014, stay updated via Facebook (most reliable), and see video, images, and more throughout the relational month of marching on the Tour Tumblr. Also, click HERE to read an article in Peri0d related to the tour.

From time to time Esther and Brian will be sharing tour diary tales on Culturebot, so stay tuned.

Dumpster-diving their way across mid-America, this multi-disciplinary tag team of artists will present responsive and relational performances, including body art, found objects, industrial noise music, and “low-brow” consumer waste (American cheese, stale donuts, hot glue, and wax). Reacting to the economic plight of artists working today, “Let’s Make a Mess” includes work that desperately and auto-poetically poses a politics that embraces non-dominant schemes for value, culture, and reality at large. Performing Artists: Brian McCorkle, Esther Neff, David Greiss, and Edward Sharp. The evening will also feature opening and closing performances by the Kansas City experimental music/performance collaboration outfit C.A.S.H.E.D., composed of Timothy Amundson (aka Timothy Abysmall) & Drew Roth (aka Piper Harrow)
