Princess: Out There

Wednesday, March 20th from 6:30-8:30pm, Art Barn Studio 1
Princess is a performance art duo, a collaboration between Alexis Gideon and Hampshire alum Michael O’Neill that uses music as the backbone of a multi-disciplinary practice. Princess explores queerness and the concept of masculinity. Simultaneously gay, straight, queer, masculine and feminine, Princess embodies the fluidity and coherence between the seemingly contradictory. ‘Out There’ (2019; 4K video, live performance; 55:20min) is a concept video album and live performance piece by the band Princess. It explores the role men ought to be playing during the current cultural reckoning of misogyny. The video’s science fiction narrative explores the power of the Divine Feminine through collaborations with JD Samson, visual artist Jennifer Meridian, and the band TEEN.
