PATTY!, a PoP! Music Religious Revival inspired by the mythic histories of Patty Duke and Patty Hearst, is being presented at Highways Performance Space, 1651 18th St. in Santa Monica, at 8:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, May 24 through 26.
In conjunction with a full album release, the project, which includes live, 360-degree performances, is a combination of dance-pop concert, fashion show and new media installation.
Created, produced and directed by Patrick Kennelly, PATTY! features 15 female performers.
The project charts a modern woman’s journey through a labyrinth of social, political and cultural bondage, exploring the way America’s male-centric media culture dominates and confuses female identities by generating representations of women as perpetually replaceable, a project spokesperson said.
Choreography is by Marina Magalh-es with additional choreography by Jmy James Kidd and Kennelly. Opening music acts include Actually Huizenga, Kristin “Kevin Blechdom” Erickson and the M.T. Brain, Wet Mango, Bloody Mares, Maxi Wild, and more.
General admission tickets are $15 (standing only) and VIP admission is $30 for assigned seats.
