Omaha, NE | 2009
about the show
This show was taped within the site-specific architectural installation, A Pre-Conscious Space, created by Sean R. Ward built within the Okada sculpture facility, directly to the east of the Bemis Center. This space, a multi-functional cave, took three months to create out of salvaged and recycled materials, including glass designed to shimmer in the exclusively candle-lit environment.
This performance featured a huge range of performers including local UFO enthusiast, RIch Webb, a librarian-hosted Gross Food Fear Factor Contest, a professional bodybuilder, and the six-year old dance squad “Hollywood or Bust.” This show also included one of Whoop Dee Doo’s most memorable collaborations with the death metal band Paria, who created a special head-banging contest for kids and adults alike.
