At the close of a Radiohole show, the stage typically overflows with spilled booze, food, sweat, and a welter of half-clad and overly lipsticked bodies. So, no, you wouldn’t call this performance collective especially puritanical. But in their latest piece, Anger/Nation, they’ve honed in on one of America’s most famous prudes, the hatchet-wielding temperance crusader Carrie A. Nation. In this play, Radiohole—with guest performer Iver Findlay—mixes up a cocktail of one-part Nation and one-part cult (and occult) filmmaker Kenneth Anger, a confirmed sybarite. They’ll serve it up with “miniature floating video monitors, Post-it notes, licorice, and a healthy dose of fairy dust.” That’s one heck of a garnish.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Wed., Sept. 24, 8 p.m. Starts: Sept. 11. Continues through Sept. 27, 2008
