THE RANT

Performed by KARL HOLMQVIST

Live guitar by ARTO LINDSAY

Set design by KLARA LIDÉN

MAY 9 & 10, 2024

THE RANT. THE RANTIER RANT RANT RANT 2024. THE RIFF. FEEDBACK LOOKBACK LOOP. THE NO MORE NO MORE.

 

About ten years ago at New Theater in Berlin, we came up with THE RANT. We ranted and wrote out all the stuff rubbing us the wrong way. Or not. Totally made up as well as actual concerns with what was going on in the world were written on cue cards and performed by Karl Holmqvist with signature feedback guitar loops by Arto Lindsay and a backdrop of slowly spinning cardboard boxes by Klara Lidén with the words ON ON ON and NO NO NO written on them in pink spraypaint.

 

And now New Theater Hollywood… EQUAL PAY FOR EVERYONE EVERYONE@EREWHON W/O IT COSTING AN ARM AND A LEG #SUPERQUIETELECTRICVEHICLES #NOBORDERS #NOORDERS #PEACEONTHEPLANET #PERMANENTCEASEFIRENOW

Is it even possible to recreate THE RANT for 2024? Guess we’re about to find out.

LILY MCMENAMY

A HOLE IS A HOLE

MARCH 2 & 3, 2024

In the US premiere of a A HOLE IS A HOLE, Lily McMenamy presented the construction of a female performer as a metamorphosing and multiplying vessel. Inhabiting a swarm of personae, McMenamy asks us who is subject to our aesthetic and erotic drives, when the relations between artist and model, monster and maker, are thrown into the blender of one singular body.

A NIGHT OF SPEECHES

JANUARY 20, 2024

A deconstructed gala commencing the first season of New Theater Hollywood. The night was framed by speeches, like a row of entrances. Doors. Windows. A nod to god. A commitment to form, and one woman shows. Vows. The electric bump of a spotlight. One bathroom. Set to a live soundtrack by Aase Nielsen & MK Velsorf.
