Artist Raja Feather Kelly is obsessed with seeing the world through a Warholian lens and "regurgitating" it into what he calls "Artsploitations." Andy Warhol's 15 (Color Me, Warhol) is the latest installment of an ongoing series jump-started by Kelly's interest in Andy Warhol, pop culture, and identity with gender-bending, race-shifiting work.
According to his Kickstarter page, this new work is "surreal and radical dance-theater," that plunders the "illusions of today's popular culture, the impending social media war, and that imaginary line separating performers and audience. "
Co-directed by filmmaker Lou Snow, Color Me, Warhol completes Andy Warhol's vision of Richard Attenborough and Michael Bennet's 1985 movie-musical classic A Chorus Line with an immersive performance that will be presented April 10-25 at Dixon Place in New York City).
The production team has over 20 individuals working to make this come alive and they are seeking $20,000 to make it happen. Nearly halfway there, with 11 days to go as of this writing, watch the group's Kickstarter trailer and help support what is surely going to be an unusual artistic experience.
