Opera Corruption (Dutch Art Institute/If I Can’t Dance I Don't Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution

A Piece of Dada

In a city torn apart by a scramble for celebrity, Lady Dada seemingly has it all. The enigmatic performance artist lures her audience by ingesting vast amounts of money in her spectacular shows promising fame and unbound pleasure. While the public is captivated by her special gift, she has no bigger fan than Madame

Gram – a glamorous but unhinged opera tycoon who is hell-bent on convincing Dada to be the star of her ‘Popera’.
