Brian Beattie presents “Ivy and the Wicker Suitcase”
Jul 14, 2014 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm| $8
Record producer/ musician Brian Beattie (Ex Glass Eye) and his wife, artist Valerie Fowler have created something they call an Illustrated Earmovie Musical- “Ivy and the Wicker Suitcase” is a 72 minute audiodrama that comes in a 62 page fully illustrated book, featuring Daniel Johnston, Bill Callahan, Will Sheff, K. McCarty, James Hand, and starring Grace London as Ivy Wire. Set in Austin in 1938, it’s an indie folkmyth about a 10 year old girl who falls into the underworld!
Brian and Valerie are bringing “Ivy” to Brooklyn, with 2 shows at Standard Toykraft. Brian tells the story and sings the tunes from “Ivy” interspersed with 4 CRANKIE SHOWS, which are 30 foot long hand drawn videos that Valerie cranks along in a home made Crankie Box to the corresponding tune. A low tech immersive multimedia marvel!
Ivy and the Wicker Suitcase! A depression era musical for the new depression!
