Preaching to the Choir
Adam Stone doesn’t want to reveal much about the art installation at the center of Screw Tooth’s Prophetia Vetitum Mundi (or Prophecy of the Forbidden World), other than to say that it’s fairly massive and really absurd, every inch of it is covered with tiny pieces of stuff and it’s unlike anything anyone’s seen before at Buntport Theater, where it will live for a week this month. “The product of an over-obsessive deep analysis of the 1982 sci-fi/horror B-movie Forbidden World — originally titled Mutant — it espouses an entire belief system/religion based on that color-drenched, Roger Corman-produced cinematic feast of monsters, sex and the far reaches of outer space, ” Stone adds.
Beyond that, the installation — which Stone completed with help from Buntport’s Erin Rollman — also comes with a live sermon performed by its creators twice during the run, on opening and closing nights. Stone’s already proven himself the master of this kind of obsessive experiential realm in prior performances and collaborations — and, yes, you really have to be there to get it. “It’ll be a killer time!” he promises.
Join the congregation tonight or Friday, August 8, at Buntport Theater, 717 Lipan Street; doors open at 8 p.m. for food and drink, and the revelations begin at 9 p.m. The installation itself will be on view from 4 to 8 p.m. daily, sans performance, Sunday through Thursday; admission is a suggested donation of $5 (or $10 on performance nights).
