You Oughta be in Fangs, written & directed by Death by Design
Decadent 1920s party-goers in search of hot-jazz and
free-flowing booze, head to a secret speakeasy run by the conjoined Whisper
Sisters. Assisted by a team of waxen virgins and undead goons, the Sisters
entice their guests with vampish performers, seductive strains and intoxicating
elixirs. But watch your step – lest you should shimmy straight into the arms of
their Vampire suitors, who slip incognito through the euphoric crowd, adding to
Join us for our first artist-directed fundraiser, You Oughta Be in Fangs
by Death by Design. Featuring
hot-jazz by D.J. Coffin Banger, a medicine show by Sanjula Vamana, vampire
bites by The Bleeding Heart Bakery, open casket portraits, a secret potion
hunt, prohibition era coffin varnish (ie. booze) and much much more.
A one-of-a-kind event, You Oughta Be in Fangs is a prohibition era meets
the undead, housed in Chicago’s spectacular The
International Museum of Surgical Science. Unlike any event threewalls has ever held, You
Oughta Be in Fangs is our first spring fundraiser, a new annual artist
designed and directed ‘experience’ where guests become ‘part of the art’.
Death by Design, Co., is a special effects and video-based company established
by artists Michelle Maynard and Teena McClelland in May 2005. The Death by
Design team constructs film sets and immersive environments at select locations
where clients are invited to enter the set and engage in an in-depth
conversation with life through their own "Hollywood" death.
Visitors can either watch the action unfold or be part of the story-line,
infiltrating the artwork as live (and dead) bodies. You Oughta Be In Fangs is
their first ‘party’ environment/installation, where party-goers, immersed in
the set, become characters in a speak-easy riddled with the undead.
