Babycastles Gallery | 137 W. 14th St.
"If you hated the War but liked the Movies, you'll love this Game!"
As part of Eddo Stern's upcoming exhibition at Postmasters Gallery, Babycastles will be hosting a special *LIVE PERFORMANCE* of Vietnam Romance -- with Lucas Near-Verbrugghe as Viet Rom Agent, and food by Thu Tran (http://www.thutran.com/). Vietnam Romance is a computer game performance and installation, a tour of nostalgia for romantics and Deathmatch veterans pitting tourists vs. adventurers, history vs. its fantasies, and games vs. cinema. The live performance involves acting and live improv, multiplayer gameplay, tournaments, dinner, music, collectable cards, dancing, multiscreen projection mapping and stage sets. Film critic Ed Halter, described a film version of the project as exploring “a peculiarly American memory-trip, one in which the legacy of a gruesome war has become indistinguishable from pleasurable, if mythic-tragic, entertainments.”
