RoosevElvis

Performance

On a hallucinatory road trip from the Badlands to Graceland, the spirits of Elvis Presley and Theodore Roosevelt battle over the soul of Ann, a painfully shy meat-processing plant worker, and what kind of man — or woman — Ann should become.

Set against the boundless blue skies of the Great Plains and endless American highway, RoosevElvis is a playfully pointed new work about icons, gender, and nobodies and somebodies, which the New York Times calls “a spirited and insightful commentary on two archetypes of American masculinity.” Once described as “Gertrude Stein meets MTV,” the TEAM’s work crashes American history and mythology into modern stories that illuminate the current moment.

Please note that the performance on October 1 at 2 pm has been canceled.

Artist Q&A. Thursday, September 29.
