The Wassaic Project, Wassaic, New York, May 12, 2018.
Performance video still. Performance ran approximately 40min.
This parade commemorates the completion of a hamlet’s spring celebration—when festivities are done and the townspeople are full of sweets and too tired to clean up the mess. Created especially for Wassaic Community Day this project featured: 50 masks, 50 bug flags, 2 pie filling costumes, 6 pie filling hats, 3 flower hats, 10 kids flower ponchos, 2 melting ice cream costumes, and 3 mini-floats.
