A high camp/high drag re-imagining of Oscar Wilde’s Salomé, seen through the perspective and aspirations of aging silent film star Norma Desmond, in pre-production now! Borrowing motifs from Sunset Boulevard and loosely referencing the Wilde text, the moving image work creates a non-linear, bizarre experimental fantasy of what Desmond might have embodied had she not be subject/subjected to misogyny, ageism, and the deafening impact of “talkies.”Project StatusCurrently in pre-production and casting. Costume creation in progress. Location(s) and all equipment secured.Premiere: May 2020
