Look, it's no secret that we're super-excited about Artlando at the end of the month. But seriously, the lineup just keeps improving. We recently announced the addition of some Artlando After Dark shows, with performances by Skill Focus Burlesque, Phantasmagoria, Ibex Puppetry, The Orlando Ballet, Voci Dance and, presented by the Orlando International Fringe Festival, Professor Soap's Music Machine.
We caught Professor Soap at the Fringe Festival this year and were quite taken with it:
"If you took two members of the Blue Man Group and had them perform in front of a screen playing Adventure Time With Finn and Jake, you might get an inkling of what this show is about. Two guys jam out on a drum and keyboard to a geeky-clubby mix reminiscent of a Yo Gabba Gabba acid trip while you watch three short animated clips. Black lights and lava lamps adorn the theater, and the audience is given glow sticks and plastic maracas to shake at the gods for the 15-minute set."
Sounds like a fitting way to wind down after a day filled with art.
Check out the video preview of the show below:
