IMAGINE: a GREAT white "whale" on the banks of Buffalo Bayou
This baby is 44' wide x 22' tall... we ain't foolin' around...
Your generous donations will be used to fund:
- The design: projection, sound, lights & crazy awesome scenic design. etc.
- Security: protecting our equipment from the elements and meddling hands/the Kraken
- Air conditioning: we want you to be cool and comfortable, but it's PRICEYYYY
Horse Head will be posting pictures and video of the design and install as it develops - so YOU will get to see your donation hard at work, in real time -- so make sure you "LIKE" us on Facebook and check out our website for updates! Won't it be cool to say, I (literally) made this possible ???
So, show us some love, give what you can -- and be rewarded with crazy AWESOME art, some sweet Horse Head booty, and that warm squishy feeling of knowing you're helping out a friend.
Don't forget: ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE! 501(c)(3), baby!
This new work by Philip Hays, Timothy N. Evers and good ol' Herman Melville invites YOU to enter the belly of the beast: Moby-Dick. Get swallowed!
The premise: Philip, a hapless actor, has been swallowed by a whale. To forestall his impending digestion, he entertains the monster with a quick, dirty and spectacular retelling of the sea beast’s favorite whale tale. Will he make it through all 135 chapters of Melville’s tome? Or does ol’ Big-Dick have a different ending in mind?
