December 30, 2010 9:00 – Midnight
Aboveground Animation debuts its manic, haunting and prurient series for 2011 on December 30th at Show Cave followed by a performance by Wet Look’s Actually Huizenga. Glam and hypnotic, she will perform live music and sacrifice. The one-night event will deliver an all new program including the world premiere of Mirror Mirror’s music video as well as Kathleen Daniels’ unearthly computer generated kaleidoscapes and Czech-born Krystof Pesek’s Euclidian existential abstractions. Sixteen more animators contribute stop-motion gore, hand-drawn wackos and ethereal rotoscoping. Enjoy catharsis by Aboveground Animation at Show Cave.
