Performance art, more than other disciplines, generally makes people uncomfortable. It’s hardly ever pleasant. I mean, can you feel “good” when Yoko Ono is standing in the MoMA, screaming like a banshee into a microphone? No, you can’t. It hurts your ears. Did people feel “civilized” when they were throwing around a scalpel and nails, during Marina Abramović’s performance “Rhythm 0”? Don’t think so. CHRISTEENE’s shows are theatrical performance art, as well as live music sets. When CHRISTEENE comes onstage and starts rapping while looking FILTHY DIRTY with a helium balloon hanging out of “her” butt, as part of the intro, will you feel comfortable with it? Probably not. Will the song “Tears from My Pussy” really make you cry? You probably won’t do that, either. There’s an intense shamelessness in CHRISTEENE in which most will revel and feel inspired by. Others might experience confusion and get slightly offended. I encourage everyone to be the former. Like good ol’ Frank Zappa once said, “A mind is like a parachute. It doesn’t work if it is not open.” KELLY O
