One hundred years after a revolution, Object Collection summons the dead. Phantom agitators and zombie visionaries produce a séance, a death march, a psychic wailing. cheap&easy OCTOBER is a live shredding of art world criticism, an original chamber opera about the revolutionary spirit and the power of the written word.
The opera unwinds the relationship between revolutionary politics, experimental art, and vanguard criticism through the psychic channeling of three consecutive events: the Russian Revolution (1917), Sergei Eisenstein's film October: Ten Days that Shook the World (1928), and the founding of the art journal "October" (1976).
"Object Collection's bold, loud and dizzying productions are not to be missed. Cheap&easy OCTOBER, written and directed by Kara Feely with music by Travis Just, is, they promise, a story of raising the dead while killing art-world criticism."
