Alive & Kicking Program #55 – Paul Zaloom #1 – post modern puppeteer, storyteller, performance artist Paul Zaloom takes the audience through his phantasmogorical dream world in his solo show, “Velvetville”. Found objects portray the characters in Zaloom’s wacky universe and the artist’s range of voices is astounding. The objects are seen manipulated on a table/stage and also appear as silhouetted figures projected on a screen behind the artist via an overhead projector. Other characters appear via a series of blue velvet paintings by Gregg Gibbs. “Velvetville” is a hilarious. Also featured is a revealing interview with the artist. Recorded in 2000 at Performance Space 122 in New York City.Length: 29 minutes.
