A program consisting of short films selected from submissions by the Dolls feverishly creative fan base will be peppered with thought provoking vaudeville antics in cities across America. Amanda Palmer herself will cap off the night in typical piano-destroying fashion, singing songs culled from popular and not-so-popular film soundtracks (expect John Hughes, Pink Floyd AND Disney Classics. Deep Throat? Oklahoma? She’s still working on it).
Curated by long-time collaborator and indie film-iconoclast Michael Pope (director of the band’s award-winning videos and live DVD), and BriAnna Olson (producer of the band’s music video ‘Sing’) these film shorts are a mixture of high art, humor, sexiness and downright weirdness. Including never-before-seen band documentary footage and amazing fan-made music videos inspired by and set to the music of The Dresden Dolls, this program is a celebration of true underground filmmaking.
True to punk cabaret form, The Dolls will be calling on their vast network of local performance artists to deck out the local venues, which have been lovingly handpicked for this event, with suitable décor. Every city promises to be a unique event including local MC’s, artist installations, theater groups and other oddball performance artists who will beguile the crowds with entre-act entertainment.
This will be a truly intimate, bizarre cinematic experiment not to be missed!!
