Coney Island Baby
Coney Island Baby is a title of a Lou Reed song and the working title for a new performance piece celebrating the strangeness of America’s cultural adolescence. It presents an ironic celebration with a satirical twist, with Coney Island itself identified as a unique performance character. The work is inspired by my upbringing in the American Midwest, my affinity for the strangeness of tourist culture, and my infatuation with the glamour that lives in uncommon places .
