CARTUNE XPREZ: 2009 Dark Voyage
A Roadshow of Animated Videos from America
Throughout the fall of 2009, Peter Burr is touring across Europe presenting the freshest incarnation of Cartune Xprez. This program of contemporary cartoons from North America celebrates the wilderness of imagination through motion pictures, projected through an inflatable backdrop of glowing crystals. The touring program will provide a rare opportunity to see videos by emerging artists as well as internationally know artists whose collective resume includes collaborations with Frank Zappa and major exhibitions at the Whitney Bienniel, the MOMA in New York, the Sundance Film Festival and many other institutions across the World. In addition, Hooliganship will be doing a live performance of their newest cartoon theater.

Live music, cartoons & video game worlds cross paths in a surreal adventure through a trash landscape. We watch a high-energy hoodie-clad biy musically and physically interact with the cartoon images on screen begind him (including his own crudely animated doubles). Pure absurd rainbow bliss, Trash is a wacky journey into media oversaturation inspired by a hypnotic abundance of digital information.
