RISK/REWARD and the Center of Contemporary Art & Culture at PNCA present CLOWN DOWN!
CLOWN DOWN opens with Portland’s premier drag clown Carla Rossi (Anthony Hudson) being crushed by a new cabinet after she fails to mount it to the wall.
Taking the traditional one-person show and turning it on its head by trapping its star under a piece of furniture, CLOWN DOWN tackles anxiety, depression, artistic blocks, and your favorite everyday traumas in a warped tribute to Mister Rogers and absurdist theatre. Using song, dance, video, and a talking pickle, Carla asks what it means to make art when our physical and mental health is under constant attack, nonetheless in a world on the brink of environmental and nuclear apocalypse – and all from underneath a hastily-made Swedish cabinet.
