THE SPILL FESTIVAL OF PERFORMANCE IS AN INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF LIVE ART, ACTIVISM AND PERFORMANCE PRESENTING THE WORK OF EXCEPTIONAL ARTISTS FROM AROUND THE GLOBE.
GETINTHEBACKOFTHEVAN take a smash-hit musical and smash it!
This Live Art Community Musical charges headlong into a bare-knuckle fight with virtuosity, legitimacy and taboo. A ‘misfit’ cast skips its way through a toe-tappingly problematic landscape of stereotype – the kind we convince ourselves has been wiped clean off the map by now.
The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas sees brothel madam Miss Mona run out of town by a crusading do-gooder celebrity. What will her girls do? Will Mona and the Sheriff re-light their spark? Will the local football team’s annual orgy get busted and leave everyone with their pants down? Are GETINTHEBACKOFTHEVAN just making a pointless song and dance?
Stuffed with cameos and interventions, GETINTHEBACKOFTHEVAN’s version of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas explores exertion, desire, cliché, the epic and will be unlike any musical you have ever seen.
