Collaborators: Jesus Christ Superstar Do-It-Yourself Messiah Complex

 

The Conspirators are looking for performing artists of any kind to collaborate on

 

The Jesus Christ Superstar Do-It-Yourself Messiah Complex

 

a one-night-only variety night centered around the ALBUM version of

Jesus Christ Superstar #JCSDIYMC

 

When: ONE NIGHT ONLY. Easter Night, Sunday, April 21, 2019

Venue: The Charnel House, 3421 W. Fullerton Ave., Chicago

 

The Jesus Christ Superstar Do-It-Yourself Messiah Complex is a multi-disciplinary neo-Vaudeville variety show, based on the ALBUM version (1970 recording) of the rock musical by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber. The concept is to “do” or “play” the entire album in order, in a celebratory, salon-like atmosphere. The evening will consist of performers (or performing groups), each doing a piece based on one cut of the album (i.e., “Pilate’s Dream” or “I Don’t Know How to Love Him”), or maybe more than one, depending on submissions. Pieces can be as simple as singing the song or even dancing to the song off the record player. Or, they can be as complex as a full-on modern dance piece with spoken word obliquely alluding to the artist’s own messiah complex. They can be burlesque, drag, karaoke, serious, funny, moderne, classical, slick or slapdash—propose anything you want! (And remember, they don’t have to BE the song, they just have to be ABOUT the song.) Proposals will be curated by a small cabal of artists led by The Conspirators Artistic Director and JCS aficionado Wm. Bullion.
