Kathleen Hanna designs set for Insane Clown Posse-inspired stage show
Of all the names that could ever be associated with Insane Clown Posse, riot-grrrl high priestess Kathleen Hanna would perhaps be the last (which became the case only after Jack White drank the Faygo). But now, as Village Voice points out, Hanna is tangentially linked to ICP for all of eternity thanks to her set design work in an upcoming theater production inspired by the group.
Producer/creator Neal Medlyn’s Wicked Clown Love is an experimental musical theater production that’s “built around the music and culture of hip-hop duo Insane Clown Posse, their devoted fan base the Juggalos, and other forms of male bonding and ritual.” No word yet on what Hanna’s set looks like, but press for the show promises that the “bomb ass music based extravaganza” will feature ”Medlyn’s dark specter versions of ICP songs, male bonding activities, flashlight wrestling, terror and horror, face paint, underground Midwestern horror rap, Faygo showers, clown love, and more.” Will there be free face-painting for all attendees as well?
The production will hold three performances from February 2nd-4th at The Kitchen in New York City. You can order tickets here.
