Documentary

American performance artist Narcissister takes a smart, sassy, spectacle-rich approach to exploring the kinds of sexual fetishism that notoriously fix racial and gender stereotypes. She combines unabashed eroticism, humor, and poignancy to stretch viewers' sensibilities and achieve surprising psychic effects. Narcissister Organ Player is originally a Bessie Awards nominated performance that takes place in a metaphorical restaurant where Narcissister, unsated by a few spinach leaves, tries to eat the restaurant furniture and ends up consuming herself by entering and traveling through her own body, represented by an enormous onstage puppet. As the performance plays out on stage, in real life, her mother's long-term illness brings on a decline that ends in death. The artist's loss provokes an exploration of how her own complex, interracial family history has compelled her to create the masked, erotic performance character Narcissister.
