Performance artist Brian Feldman gets back to his roots with mysterious 'Macbeth' performance at Lake Eola


Performance artist and actor Brian Feldman may be based out of Washington, D.C., now, but we're lucky that he still comes down to visit pretty frequently. He's known for such performance pieces as "The Skill Crane Kid," in which he locked himself inside a claw machine, "Leap Year Day," in which he jumped from the top of a ladder 366 times within the space of 24 hours, and "Brian Feldman Marries Anybody," in which he married a complete stranger in order to needle the idea that heterosexual marriages were somehow inherently more valid than homosexual ones. But his acting career began on the stage at Lake Eola's Walt Disney Amphitheatre, where he played the Third Witch in an Orlando Shakespeare Theater production of Macbeth at the tender age of 10. Feldman returns to that very stage this week with this performance, the details of which he's keeping under wraps, but it involves Feldman playing all 40 characters throughout the cursed "Scottish play." We're not sure what he has planned, exactly, but Feldman promises that it will be the most experimental thing he's ever done, which, coming from a guy who once passed off reading Orlando Weekly out loud as art, is saying something.
