The chemical emissions and aphrodisiac soft drinks of a ruined tropical factory-island set the stage for this 21st century absurdist romance by cartoonist Ben Katchor (recipient of a 2000 MacArthur "genius award") and composer Mark Mulcahy (former lead of the rock bands Miracle Legion and Polaris). With projected drawings, animation, and a sung-through pop score, The Slug Bearers of Kayrol follows the efforts of a New York philanthropist to bring the modern poetry of instructional pamphlets to a group of exploited island workers.
There is an additional performance on Saturday, March 20th at 3pm.
