Written & performed by KERITH MANDERSON-GALVIN
A PART OF MARDI GRAS AT KXT
"a glorious mess with a serious purpose" Daily Review
A dangerous quest of literary theft, build-your-own identity and post-anarchy. Being Dead (Don Quixote) steals from Cervantes, Barbie™ and instant porn. Don Quixote is the idol you deserve.
Kerith Manderson-Galvin’s sensational and ever evolving signature work has alienated and captivated audiences and now debuts in Sydney at KXT. Infamous Queer Femme Kerith Manderson-Galvin (AKA Unofficial Kerith Fan Club) rips off the original rip-off artist Kathy Acker et al. in this ongoing project purposefully rewritten to Manderson-Galvin’s own shifting identity.
From the chaotic and critically acclaimed company that brought Sydney ‘Puntila/Matti’, ‘The Eternity of the World’, and ‘Unsex Me’ - MKA Theatre of New Writing.
Additional Text Kathy Acker / Miguel de Cervantes / Barbie Commercials
Composer/Musician Jules Pascoe
