Neal Medlyn (2013 Performing Arts) premieres his Creative Capital-supported project, King, at The Kitchen in New York, October 23-26. King is a performance art project about epic attempts, centered on the work and persona of Michael Jackson. Since 2006, Medlyn has been creating a seven-show performance series in which each piece is built around a pop star or iconic group, from Lionel Richie to Miley Cyrus to the Insane Clown Posse. The finale of this series, King contains radically rethought versions of Jackson’s music, intuitively-related source material in sculpture and costume, combined with considerations of Medlyn's personal and artistic trajectory over the past several years.

Concurrent with the run of King, there will also be an exhibit of video, art pieces, ephemera and related work from all seven shows in Medlyn’s Pop Star Series in The Kitchen theater (open 2:00-6:00pm).

You can watch videos from the Pop Star Series on his website.
