Performing artists of any medium for the Jesus Christ Superstar Do-It-Yourself Messiah Complex

The Conspirators are looking for performing artists of any kind to collaborate on
The Jesus Christ Superstar Do-It-Yourself Messiah Complex
a one-night-only variety night centered around the ALBUM version of

Jesus Christ Superstar #JCSDIYMC
When: ONE NIGHT ONLY. Easter Night, Sunday, April 12, 2020
Venue: The Charnel House, 3421 W. Fullerton Ave., Chicago

The Jesus Christ Superstar Do-It-Yourself Messiah Complex is a multi-disciplinary neo-
Vaudeville variety show, based on the ALBUM version (1970 recording) of the rock

musical by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber. The concept is to “do” or “play” the
entire album in order, in a celebratory, salon-like atmosphere. The evening will
consist of performers (or performing groups), each doing a piece based on one cut
of the album (i.e., “Pilate’s Dream” or “I Don’t Know How to Love Him”), or maybe
more than one, depending on submissions. Pieces can be as simple as singing the
song or even dancing to the song off the record player. Or, they can be as complex as
a full-on modern dance piece with spoken word obliquely alluding to the artist’s
own messiah complex. They can be burlesque, drag, karaoke, serious, funny,
moderne, classical, slick or slapdash—puppets!—you can propose anything you
want! (And remember, they don’t have to BE the song, they just have to be ABOUT
the song.) Proposals will be curated by a small cabal of artists led by The
Conspirators Artistic Director and JCS aficionado Wm. Bullion.
