Longing for some April enchantment? Come join Frolick theatre and friends as we celebrate the 30th birthday of the Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies, a California-based not-for-profit organization, with a wild weekend of PSYCHEDELIC DINNER THEATRE inspired by The Chelsea Hotel of the 1970’s. Each show includes a lineup of live music, art, and speakers followed by an explosive performance of Sam Shepard and Patti Smith’s play “COWBOY MOUTH”, starring Toronto based actor/producer Matthew Krist and performance artist Shawna Willow, under the direction of Maria Wodzinska of Paris’ esteemed Lecoq school. The Friday and Saturday performances will feature an immersive, post-show live music happening where audience members are encouraged to put on a costume, rid the role of spectator and become part of the experience.
The by-product of an extended 1971 tryst between Smith and Shepard in New York’s infamous Chelsea Hotel, COWBOY MOUTH is a surreal, one-act emotional somersault that explores a day in the life of an eccentric pair of mismatched lovers as they negotiate themes of art, love, identity and disaster--all within the confines of their squalid hotel room, having become a metaphor for the universe at large. Cavale, a former mental patient with a penchant for French romanticism, has kidnapped Slim off the streets with the intention to transform him into the ultimate rock and roll saviour. The only problem? They fall in love.
