At our last Carousel, The Political Show on October 26, we invited the audience and performers to draw one or more of the presidential candidates, either real or imagined. These were projected during the show. Here are some of the drawings:
Here’s a casual clip of R. Sikoryak drawing, from our last Carousel for Kids show on November 2. It was spontaneously shot by Brian McLane from the audience! The audio is a little quiet, particularly the music track, but you can hear the kids popping bubble wrap (a prop from Sam Henderson‘s slide show, earlier in the program).
A few articles about our shows, on paper and on the web, from 2012:
A feature on Carousel appeared in the great Canadian hybrid-arts magazine Carousel (no relation). The 29th issue, dated Summer-Fall 2012, also features articles and comics by Claire Horsnell, David Boswell, Michael DeForge, Magda Trzaski, and much more. Buy it here.
Frequent Carousel contributor Sam Henderson wrote an article for The Comics Journal, “Comics Aren’t Just For Eyes Anymore,” on the proliferation of cartoon slide show readings. He touches on a number of the precursors and current practitioners of the format.
An interview with R. Sikoryak about last month’s BCGF/Brick show appeared in The Brooklyn Paper.
Thanks to Claire Horsnell, Sam Henderson, and Chuck O’Donnell for the coverage!
