A stocking stuffer sized multimedia performance exploring American crapitalism’s historic generosity to the 1% through genocide, slavery and the prison industrial complex. Marketed in the mythology of the American dream, these gifts just seem to keep on giving!

Presented as part of Performance Laboratory's APOCALYPSE event on 12/14/12. The Performance Laboratory is an interdisciplinary performance series established in March 2010 at Detroit Contemporary (a division of the CAID). Co-curated by Carrie Morris & Emilia Javanica, the series is focused on providing a forum for new short works and works in progress. Occurring the third Friday of every other month, the series features 5-8 artists per episode whose work explores and investigates the dynamics of what live performance is and what it can be.

Encouraging original works and the exploration of new ideas, the Performance Laboratory aims to facilitate impassioned dialogue around the possibilities that lie within performance. Our goal is to establish a consistent venue for ideas to be shared and developed, new artistic partnerships to be made, and a supportive and diverse community to gather.
