Holiday Workshop with Machine Dazzle: Personal Hero Shrine
November 18, 2020 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Location: Zoom Webinar
Machine Dazzle has been sparkling up stages via costumes, sets, and performance since his arrival in New York in 1994, collaborating with artists like Julie Atlas Muz’s, Big Art, Justin Vivian, Taylor Mac, and more. He has also designed projects for Opera Philadelphia and Spiegleworld.
About the Workshop:
Every year we are reminded of the holidays when familiar things start popping up around our communities: candy canes, red and green balls, plastic Santa, twinkling lights, and nostalgic music on the radio. Some of these things bring us cheer… and others, not as much. Machine Dazzle likes to honor the Solstice, and the season of giving by spreading light in the darkest days of the year. In Machine’s quest to make the holiday season more meaningful in a sea of commercialism and chaos, he has turned inward to celebrate and honor those people who have been important in his life. Marrying this idea with his love for making things (and a good party) Machine invites you to join him in hand-crafting shrines dedicated to your own personal Holiday Hero…using recycled materials and other objects you will have at home, along with things you can easily find at a local craft store.
Think about the person you are honoring with your shrine. Choose materials that they love or that remind you of them. Be inspired by shared experiences, things they love to do, their favorite color, hobbies, food, etc.
