Queen Shmooquan’s psychedelic, multimedia, performance art, musical dance theater, "happening."
The sensational super-real hero and renowned Modern Day Oracle, Queen Shmooquan, presents a new evening length multimedia theater piece in which she dances, sings, and eats her way through a psychedelic, hilarious expedition full of bizarre storylines and prophetic messages.
In I OWN ME, The Queen, a master shape-shifter, effortlessly transforms from her lucid plain talking self into ethereal and more often than not, unusual embodiments of American mass culture and the greater world around her. Vacillating between the mundane and surreal, Queen Shmooquan must trevail the seductive chasm of modern female self-reinvention and celebrity worship, the suffocation of inherited self-destructive thought patterns and behaviors, and a material world controlled by the Weiner-ball Priesthood. Despite the circumstances, the Queen transcends the doom, joyfully healing herself and others in the process.
In the presentation of the Queen’s non-linear, yet timely stories, video projections by artist Joe Plotts, original music by the Queen herself, and surreal ever-evolving costuming, she functions much like a fast paced, real-time collage performance artist. The Queen cuts and pastes familiar imagery of the collective American consciousness with the unknown and divine, to create thought-provoking, hilarious multimedia theater that pushes the limits of absurdist political and social satire.
