I once heard someone refer to Zizek, the Slovenian philosopher, as the Elvis of Cultural theory. Last night I found myself constantly comparing Cynthia Hopkins' Must Don’t Whip ”˜Um to that quote, she and Gloria Deluxe could and should easily be considered the Elvis of Performance Art. The show was a brilliant amagalmation of music, video, and dance. It was also on the level of myth that only Elvis could have achieved. So much so it seems to have been based on a mythic character. A friend of mine who joined me for the show, seemed strangely familiar with the plot.
