OUT THERE by Princess
The performance duo Princess, comprising Alexis Gideon and Michael O'Neil (JD Samson & MEN), use music as the backbone of a multi-disciplinary practice that often explores issues of queerness and the concept of masculinity. Simultaneously gay, straight, queer, masculine, and feminine, Princess embodies the fluidity and coherence between the seemingly contradictory. Out There is a concept video album and live performance that explores the role men ought to be playing during the current cultural reckoning of misogyny. According to the artists, the science fiction narrative piece is likened to Beyoncé's "Lemonade" meets "Hamilton" meets Kraftwerk, and builds on the long legacy of concept albums like Ziggy Stardust and Deltron 3030. The world premiere of Out There takes place at the Andy Warhol Museum on March 1, followed by a tour and the NYC premiere at the New Museum in April.
