JUNE 2012

June 21st – July 1st: Talibam! & Sam Kulik present Discover Atlantass at Incubator Art’s Project (131 E10th St., New York, NY 10026). Part rock show, part absurd theater, Discover AtlantASS, is an opera in two acts that tells the story of a young teen named Franklin who gets abducted to the undersea world of Atlantis by a laid-back jazz fish revolutionary named Stinge. Together, they are ready to combat a disastrous oil spill which has nearly eradicated the vibrant community of poets, musicians, artists and fornicators who inhabit the undersea paradise. The trio of Talibam! and Sam Kulik play all the instruments and nearly a dozen characters in this tale of adventure, jazz, sex and revolution. Originally conceived during the horrific Gulf of Mexico oil spill in 2010, the show’s humor is balanced by explicit themes of political corruption and environmental disaster. Discover AtlantASS also exists as a CD and 30-page comic book, available at all shows. PLEASE NOTE: We have to rent the theater for $5000, so we have started a campaign to help us cover our high costs…thanks all, here is the link: indiegogo.com/atlantass. Hope to see you!
