Whoop Dee Doo Walnut Space

Kansas City, MO |  2010–2012

about the show

In the Summer of 2010 Whoop Dee Doo obtained a studio and performance space in Kansas City. This space provided a place for consistent local programming and performances, allowing us to connect on a regular basis with several local youth organizations, youth from the community, artists, and local performers. Throughout this two year period, we consistently had events, screenings, and live performances that were all free and open to the public.  Having this home-base also provided us an creative opportunity to design and reconstruct the performance space freely and often.

A few highlights included: a special Christmas performance with a contest called “Christmas Chaos” hosted by Kansas City’s then Mayor, Mark Funkhauser.  This contest was designed to overwhelm the contestants in Christmas-related multi-sensory pandemonium a search for a hidden the key to city.
