Save the date for my next and LAST movie night at the Rabbithole! As your Rabbit Movie Night curator for the past 3 years, I am soon leaving the country and am contributing one last time to this amazing space with a special evening. I'm inviting local talents to present their latest films, and we'll have the pleasure to invite our good friend SUGARLIFE to preform live one more time.
Born in France, Sugarlife (Christian Dautresme) is a performance/music artist living in New York City. “It’s like watching a cheap live daytime soap in which the main female character unravels onstage. There is usually some sort of molting which follows…” says Sugarlife. “Imagine if the United States became a third world country and people had to resort to living room theatre or decrepit mall theater for entertainment. I’m trying to… manifest the subconscious imagery that inhabits the world of dreams and the world of films by the likes of David Lynch, John Waters, Bunuel, Almodovar and others.
"Sugarlife explores and desecrates the time-based and spatial notions ofperformance art, identity, and sexuality with an entertaining and often absurd interactive, live performance. It tends to be hilarious as well as very scary. Whether charging the air with electronic blips, conjuring up a damaged visitor from the realms of the immortal spirits such as Kazuo Ono and Tatsumi Hijikata, or singing in a celestial soprano, Sugarlife becomes a sonic shaman whose transcendence is the only constant. Neo-Fluxus freak out? Absurdist action art? The ghost of G.G. Allin as a drag queen from a distant planet? Sugarlife transcends any classification."
