Do What You LoveNaked Empire Bouffon Company
Amy, a misshapen and shameless mountain climber is thrilled, to a disturbing degree, to share the life story and message of Scott Dinsmore, a recently-deceased, wildly-successful entrepreneur, whose life’s work was inspiring people all over the world to do what they love. But is Amy celebrating Dinsmore or warning us?
Can Amy be trusted to tell us the truth? Through storytelling, puppetry, catastrophic mime, and lip syncing to Joni Mitchell, Amy gleefully complicates the ethos that equates doing what you love with success.
“It’s vile and provocative, but it’s also a very sly, smart commentary on a culture busily amusing itself as it slides off this mortal coil, too afraid to talk about serious things, and too busy dumbing itself down.” – A Beast In A Jungle
Directed by Gabriel McKinney
