A comic book comes alive onstage: TARZANA is a collaboration with award-winning playwright and screenwriter Jason Grote (‘Mad Men’). Influenced by film-makers such as Alejandro Jodorowsky and David Lynch and the New York Punk scene of the 1970s and early 80’s, TARZANA unfolds in a hand-drawn landscape following the misadventures of a guilt-ridden Superman, Two Non Blondes and architect of the Terror, Robespierre. What comes to pass is surreal mayhem in true Radiohole tradition: an uproarious, bacchanalian, beautiful mess. Be warned: there will be karaoke. And blood.
TARZANA was developed in residence at Jim Findlay’s studio in DUMBO in May 2015 and had its world premiere at this summer’s Mass Live Arts Festival, July 23-25, 2015. Stay tuned for TARZANA 2.0 coming in 2016!
