The Van Gogh Shogh

Donna Oblongata


Categories: Theater, Immersive/Interactive Experience

Dates: September 21, 2023 - September 24, 2023

Run Time: 60 mins

Venue: Deep End Studios


Free show. Bring cash. Very special investment opportunity.


A little bit karaoke, a little bit sip n’ paint, and a little bit The Barnes. Basically a bunch of moving projections of beautiful paintings by a tortured Dutchman who died a while ago. Good stuff people with taste and culture like. 

About the Artist

I am a multidisciplinary artist living in Southwest Philadelphia. My work is deeply grounded in anarchist theory and praxis. I make projects that serve as experiments in anti-capitalist utopian structures and prefiguring a more desirable and cooperative world. These ephemeral moments of process and performance allow us to experience alternative ways of being, interacting, and producing culture. I was a founding member of the acclaimed punk-rock theater company The Missoula Oblongata, and have toured my original work throughout the US, New Zealnad, and Europe for the last forever.
My work has been supported by the likes of the Leeway Foundation, the Wilhelm Foundation, the Fund for Wild Nature, Meow Wolf, and residencies at MacDowell, the Cornell University Soil Factory, and the Ellis-Beauregard Foundation. I was the Spring 2023 Visiting Artist Fellow at College of the Atlantic.
