CITIZEN asks the questions “what does it mean to belong” and “what does it mean to NOT want to belong”. Through a series of riveting, multi-layered solos and ensemble work, CITIZEN wrestles with the desires, re-actions, responses and relationships to and about, the very private, public/group-matter of individuality and ‘belonging to’.

the feath3r theory presents: Andy Warhol's TROPICO -or- Zeitgeist - the fall of man, the age of desire, Adam and Steve in the Rite of Spring, Lana Del Rey's 'It's Always Everything' staring Allen Ginsberg as William Shakespeare or the greatest story (of survival) ever told.
WORLD PREMIERE: June 2-4, 2016 at Danspace Project (danspaceproject.org)
TROPICO: Loosely-inspired by Lana Del Rey’s short film of a similar name and explores Raja Feather Kelly’s relationship to pop-culture as he attempts to demystify, through dance and theater, pop-culture’s relationship to humanity. TROPICO is about beginnings, endings, truths, illusions and how to live in the world when you feel so far outside of it. Andy Warhol said, “It’s the movies that have really been running things in America ever since they were invented. They show you what to do, how to do it, when to do it, how to feel about it, and how to look how you feel about it.” TROPICO questions if this is true.

From the creator of the searing cultural drama, the feath3r theory Presents: Andy Warhol’s DRELLA (I Love You Faye Driscoll), Raja Feather Kelly creates another deeply-superficial, gender-bending, race-shifiting, multi-medium ‘Artsploitation’. His new work is surreal and radical dance-theater, plundering the illusions of today’s popular culture, the impending social media war, and that imaginary line separating performers and audience. Co-directed by filmmaker Laura Snow, the feath3r theory Presents: Andy Warhol’s 15 (Color Me, Warhol) completes Andy Warhol’s vision of Richard Attenborough & Michael Bennett's 1985 movie-musical classic A CHORUS LINE.
