Opening - The Dog's Breakfast

Saturday June 4th 
7-10pm
at Musee16

 

Finger foods and refreshments
along with
Bits and Pieces Projections
from Lindsay Anderson's 1973
O Lucky Man!

This sprawling, 
surrealist musical serves as an allegory for the pitfalls of capitalism, 
as it follows the adventures of a young coffee salesman through Europe.




exhibiting for June/July

["dog's breakfast," which has been British slang for "a complete mess" since at least the 1930s. While no one took the time to write down the exact origin of the phrase, the allusion involved seems to be to a failed culinary effort, perhaps a burned or botched omelet, fit only for consumption by the mouth of last resort, Fido. As a vivid figure of speech meaning something so fouled up as to be utterly useless, "dog's breakfast" can cover anything from a play plagued by collapsing scenery to a space mission ruined by a mathematical error.]
