About the show

Satirist, storyteller, and cabaret artist Dandy Darkly presents his latest solo show, which explores religious extremism, chemical addiction, and our contemporary worship of media technology. More…

Dandy Darkly's immersive storytelling experience touches on allegorical tales concerning a junkie Persephone, space puppy Laika, virtual reality fixation, and humanity's first artist, Cha-Cha the Caveman. He cites folklorist Joseph Campbell, recent celebrity deaths, his childhood love of mythology, and his personal struggles with substance abuse as influences for crafting this one-person show, which is backed by a nonstop soundscape of prerecorded music.
