Etiquette Of Death, The

Synopsis:
Death is a messy and terrifying horror. Or, it can be a quiet, unapologetic thief in the night. For the past twenty-five years living in the East Village Chris Tanner has been surrounded by death. Hes obsessed with how the dying and those who love them behave in the face of it. When you explore the artifice and manners that surround this unruly journey - the etiquette of death - the outcome can be absurd, paradoxical, wrenching, and at times, hilarious. Hes asked a group of artists he admires to help him put together a collage of scenes, songs, poetry, music and dance that explores the Etiquette of Death.

Football Head

Synopsis:
Chris Tanner returns to La MaMa with Football Head, a solo exposť of the sexual awakening of a nerdy art queen. Tanner leads us on a psychedelic trip through the shimmering rabbit hole of his memory, weaving true and wacky stories of eccentric relatives and friends, dancing with shame, rage and guilt to the tunes of early 70's AM radio. Told and sung by Chris Tanner, he is accompanied by composer Lance Cruce on the 88's and two gorgeous doo-wop girls. Together, they spin sundry tales of humiliation into a glittering web of delirium. and ecstasy.
