Attention! Looney Tunes lovers, theater kids, and silly wabbits seeking revenge—this show is for you.
San Francisco-based artist and drag queen Silk Worm presents a world premiere. The jaws of all are red with gore takes the classic cartoon series Looney Tunes as its source material. Loosely representing Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd, three performers (Silk Worm, Frank Leasing, and Hiroko Tamano of Harupin-Ha Dance Theater) activate the stage with lip-sync, stage combat, butoh, clowning, projections, and live singing. The result is an atmospheric and zany piece of dance theater that turns the levity of Looney Tunes on its head.
