Tour Without End (Episode One) is the first episode in a multi-platform project that includes film, installation and photography. Saturday night will also include a live performance and film shoot. It’s an experimental, darkly comedic hybrid-documentary where real-life musicians, actors and writers are cast as alternate-universe-rockstar versions of themselves. It follows the the fictional band “Munchausen,” and revels in their complex band dynamics whilst enduring the strain of touring, collaborating and the process of aging while immersed in a youth driven DIY music scene. It features numerous live performances at artist run music venues in and around New York City. A core group of actors, writers, musicians and artists work off semi-scripted scenes highlighted with performances by featured bands.

The players include: Lizzi Bougatsos (Gang Gang Dance), Jim Fletcher (NYC Players), Kate Valk (Wooster Group), Matthew Asti (MGMT), Becca Blackwell, Neon Music (Youth Quake), Alexandra Drewchin (Earth Eater), Shannon Funchess (Light Asylum), Gary Indiana, Rachel Mason, Rogelio Ramos (Love Pig), Rafael Sanchez and Kathleen Hanna (Julie Ruin), and Conrad Ventur. Special thanks to Aker Imaging for their support.

The installation will remain on view through January 15 daily from 11am-2pm or by appointment.
