The Traveling Miracle Show
Momas and Dadas: New Genres Project House
Las Vegas, NV
Las Vegas Review Journal
From the heart of a miraculous metropolis in the desert, comes a group of artists producing modern-day marvels. The Traveling Miracle Show doesn’t claim to offer a cure-all elixir for rheumatism, baldness & bad breath, but it does promise an evening of astonishing spectacle and miraculous events. The intrepid viewer may encounter mystical beasts, a human cactus, melancholic black bile, an infinite fountain of alcohol, the root of good and evil, and a ‘sin-eating’ delicacy.
This one-night art installation and performance event will be held at the new experimental art venue Momas and Dadas Project House by the 18b sign on Casino Center in the heart of the Arts District. The Las-Vegas-based artists participating in the first Traveling Miracle event have established reputations in the fields of video, performance and installation. They are Artist Michael Barrett, Nathan Coté, Matthew Couper, Brent Holmes, Jenessa Kenway, JK Russ and Jevijoe Vitug.
This project has been funded, in part, by the Nevada Arts Council, a state agency, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. With the assistance of this grant, the artists will be taking The Traveling Miracle Show on the road in Nevada, with a second event scheduled for Reno Art Works in mid-April.
