Tix For “John Waters Xmas” and Isabella Rossellini’s “Green Porno” On Sale Friday

Isabella Rossellini's "Green Porno" is part live action and part video and its coming to The Moore in November.

Isabella Rossellini’s “Green Porno” is part live action and part video and its coming to The Moore in November.

The rest of 2013, from now until the end of the year, is FULL of some VERY interesting events. Two such events start ticket sales tomorrow, Friday, September 13 and in the know people might want to snatch up some tickets pronto because they’re both pretty hella awesome.

First up and though it’s hard to believe, probably the odder of the two events, is actress/artist/ environmentalist/ Ingrid Bergman’s daughter Isabella Rossellini’s GREEN PORNO happening at The Moore on Monday, November 4, 2013. The GREEN PORNO project is hard to describe…it’s very, very….odd.

A conference, reading and performance about the sexuality of insects, the piece is written by Isabella Rossellini and Jean-Claude Carrière. The text, written by Jean-Claude Carrière, will be read and performed by Isabella Rossellini. The conference about mating in the natural world will be interrupted on several occasions by 2-minute-long short movies, directed by Isabella Rossellini, in which she plays a fly, a duck, a calmar or a bug. She will comment upon each of the shorts live. Pre-selected animals (for the existing shorts): the snail, the worm, the fly, the shrimp, the deadly spider, the praying-mantis, the anchovy, the bi-phallic snake.

Uh, yeah.

But, whatever the Divine Rossellini wants to do, we’ll support. The star of “Blue Velvet” and “Death Becomes Her” is one of our heroes. And, they had us at “bi-phallic snake”.

We certainly live in a very topsy turvy post modern world where a John Waters’ event is the “safer” more mainstream option. The very much beloved film director/ writer/ King of Sleaze/ gay icon is back in Seattle for a very special Christmas Treat as Seattle Theatre Group brings A JOHN WATERS CHRISTMAS to The Neptune on Thursday, December 5, 2013. 

Like a wayward Santa for the Christmas obsessed, John Waters – legendary filmmaker (Pink Flamingos, Hairspray, A Dirty Shame), and author of the 2010 bestselling book, Role Models – cruises into town on his sleigh full of smut this December, spreading yuletide cheer and lunacy with his critically acclaimed one-man show, “A John Waters Christmas.” Putting the “X” back in Xmas, Waters’ rapid-fire monologue explores and explodes the traditional holiday rituals and traditions as he shares his compulsive desire to give and receive perverted gifts, a religious fanaticism for Santa Claus, and an unhealthy love of real life holiday horror stories. Delving into his passion for lunatic exploitation Christmas movies and the unhealthy urge to remake all his own films into seasonal children’s classics, “The Pope of Trash” will give you a Joyeux Noel like no other.

It’s pretty much a John Waters Autumn as October features the Seattle premiere of the “I Am Divine” documentary featuring Mr. Waters’ muse, Divine, and a reading of Mr. Waters’ never produced sequel to “Pink Flamingos” happening at the Northwest Film Forum and both a part of the Seattle Lesbian & Gay Film Festival happening October 10 through the 20th.

It makes us happy that Seattle is full of such oddness. We encourage you to be as odd as possible. Not only should you attend both these seminal events, but you should also go out and make some provocative art as well. Just be original about it.
