Another fucking Warhol Production or Who's Afraid of Andy Warhol? is a 2017 American docufiction performance, which will premiere as part of Lumberyard in The City. Directed by Raja Feather Kelly, recipient of the 2016 Solange MacArthur Award for New Choreography, the performance stars Kelly and his company as themselves performing a post-ballet theatre musical that reimagines and attempts to re-create the unrecorded, deleted and lost footage from Saturday Night Live's 2015 Episode on Love and War (The Love Episode). Featuring musical guest Kanye West. The cast also includes Amy Gernux, Sara Gurevich, Rachel Pritzlaff, Collin Ranf, Aaron Moses Robin, Benjamin Wolk and Aitor Mendilibar as the cameraman. Lighting Design by Tuce Yasak, Video by Laura Snow, Photography by Kate Enman and Sound Design by Emily Auciello.

he his own mythical beast is a series of performance installations by David Hamilton Thomson. The work is a meditation on the constructs surrounding identity. A narrative on love. A dream. An accumulation of research and thoughts that question the source of how we perceive ourselves and the other.
