For the seventh and final work of his “Pop Star” series, Neal Medlyn focused entirely on Michael Jackson. Performed by Medlyn, Farris Craddock, and a small children’s choir, King was composed of radically rethought reinterpretations of iconic Michael Jackson songs mixed with autobiographical content detailing Medlyn's personal and artistic trajectory of the past several years.

 

Throughout the run of this performance, an exhibition of video, art, ephemera and related work from all seven shows in Medlyn’s “Pop Star” series was on view in The Kitchen’s theater. It included sculpture by Fawn Krieger, costumes by Larry Krone, and video by Matt Romein.
