Demons On The Horizon Saturday December 4th

Neo Kabuki Performance Group Odam Fei Mud Expands Their Epic Performance With ‘Demons On The Horizon’, Saturday, December 4th!

Denver, CO- Experience unique performance art, live music, amazing costumes, mixed media, and martial arts in one amazing show. For one night only, Saturday December 4th the Bindery Theater hosts Demons On The Horizon, a visual and audio extravaganza touted as one of Denver’s most avant new performances.

The show will feature the samurai sword fighting, neo-kabuki performance group OdAm fEI mUd, with three new scenes of corruption, new projections, and progressive metal score from the Odam Fei Mud band, the War Ensamble.

OFM: OdAm fEI mUd (Oh-dom feh mood) is a samurai, neo-kabuki, performance art group directed by Daniel Crosier. The performance is choreographed fighting and sword work, incorporating elaborate prosthetics and props, ultimately progressing to a crescendo of what critics have described as a “b-movie Cirque Du Soliel.”

The music of OFM is the only narrative to this stage performance of tyranny in ambiguity. The music itself is a progressive and evolving score based in heavy drumming.

Crosier explains his vision for the show, “Over the years OFM has evolved in many different approaches and aesthetics in performance, music, and commentary. OFM is heavily influenced by the manga Lone Wolf & Cub, the samurai film Akira Kurosawa’s the Seven Samurai, and the performance metal band GWAR. I wanted to combine these elements in the performance. Adding the new scenes and projections will further this yarn of despotic drama that reads like the b-movie soap opera it is. It’ll be something the audience has never experienced.”

Performing earlier in the evening is Faceman, a project known for entertaining live shows that combine original music and videos with a creative performance. David Thomas Bailey, 7 string guitar; Ryan Elwood, drums; and FaceMan, guitar and vocals. The band also comprises of a three piece horn section (trombone, trumpet, and tenor sax) The FaceMan experience evolves rapidly, with every attempt to explore new creative ways to deliver media and to provide high-quality entertainment. The FaceMan is both a band and a character created to guide the overall experience.

Daniel Crosier will also be screening Backseat Conceptions’ animation/live action short film Lords of Pain, created by Tim Cronin & Albert Cook. Crosier and several local artists & animators designed and executed the hilarious animation out of Denver. If you love Adult Swim you’ll enjoy this short film!
