Karen O’s ‘Stop the Virgens’ continues @ St. Ann’s (trailer), Creators Project this weekend (set times)

“Karen O’s “Stop the Virgens” psycho opera blew my mind last night!Seriously the best piece of musical art that I’ve seen in ages.I LOVED it!” – Santigold

“The costume, hair and makeup tell the story just as much as the music and choreography do,” Karen O explained days before tonight’s opening of her much-anticipated psycho-opera, “Stop the Virgens.” “The symbolic evolution of what happens to the characters is witnessed through their physical transformations.”

To help bring her vision to life, Karen enlisted what she calls her “glam squad”: the costume designer Christiane Hultquist (a k a Christian Joy) and the makeup artist Mike Potter. “Mike is a phenomenon. I envy his impeccable taste as a lover of beauty off the beaten path,” Karen said. “Christiane is an artist before a designer. She’s a visionary, and her costumes look amazing onstage.” The trio’s longstanding relationship — they’ve spent more than a decade taking creative risks together, onstage and off — is rooted in tacit understanding and concrete trust. “The way I work with Christiane and Mike is to mostly let them do what they want. It works best that way.” -[New York Times]

Karen O‘s Stop the Virgens debuted on Wednesday night at St. Ann’s Warehouse and continues tonight until October 22. Tickets are still available. Trailer below.

Saturday’s performance is also part of The Creators Project, which will also feature performances from Justice, Florence & The Machine, Company Flow, the newly-signed A$AP Rocky with Clams Casino, Four Tet, and many many others in addition to art installations at multiple locations in DUMBO. Unfortunately, the RSVP is closed and some people have been getting emails that dis-invite them…. oof.
