A collaborative artist’s book and audio recording which translates a previous collaborative theater work into a violent multimedia disquisition on puppetry, serial killing and homoeroticism. The play and book are based on the Texan serial killer Dean Corll.
Jerk – Through their Tears is a collective project by director Gisèle Vienne, author Dennis Cooper, musician Peter Rehberg and performer Jonathan Capdevielle. As in their theater works, it is a multi-faceted exploration of these artists’ combined interest in representing the emotional dissonance of confused, self-destructive, sensation seeking teenagers and the adults who romanticize their darkness, stylize their unhappiness, and take charge of their destruction.
