Out There, the new thought-provoking concept video album accompanied by a live performance from the art-pop psychedelic band Princess, will be in Houston for one night only at the Aurora Picture Show on April 17. Don’t miss it. The piece debuted on March 1 at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh and has since been galvanizing audiences across the country. Princess, embodied by artists Alexis Gideon and Michael O’Neill, has created a work that explores toxic masculinity and the role men can play during the current cultural reckoning of misogyny.
The creative spark that resulted in this performance piece was ignited in the wake of the first Women’s March in Washington, DC in 2017. Princess describes Out There as a sci-fi feminist rock opera that is a cross between Beyoncé’s Lemonade , Broadway’s Hamilton , and the sound of German electro-pioneers Kraftwerk. The irony of two white men booking a cross-country performance art tour to deliver the message that men should listen to women is not lost upon Princess as their often humorous, self-critical piece reflects. Out There celebrates the power of the Divine Feminine through collaborations with musician JD Samson, visual artist Jennifer Meridian, and the band TEEN.
