The Olio Professor power couple, Geoff & Maureen are turning the combined force of their intellectual powers on the very serious subject of Christmas movies.
*This Olio will take place in a Williamsburg apartment. Address given upon rsvp*
Have you ever seen the Radio City Christmas Show with the Rockettes? Actual SHOWGIRLS?!?? It is deeply insane. Watch clips from the show with us on a projector in a cozy living room and follow us down the rabbit hole, discussing how it encapsulates all of America in a deeply paradoxical N-th degree phantasmagoria involving capitalism, Christianity, sexuality (and BDSM), gender-fluidity, children, the military, psychoanalytic ideas about belief, and complex levels of artifice involving live theater, 3D movies, DRONES, a “real”-story-inside-a-fake-story, and a fake version of the room you are currently in. Sidebars will be taken into Sufjan Stevens, Charles Dickens, and the Nightmare Before Christmas.
