Disclaimer: If spelling errors, strange placements of commas and hyphens upset you I apologize for my inability to retain that part of my education.

In my opinion  “Must Don’t Whip  ”˜Um ” was a solidly entertaining, genuine and definitely worth seeing if you don’t have some dramatic adversity to hippies or Natalie Merchant.

The story was told from the perspective of a girl named Mary whose mother, Cameron Seymour, had abandoned her by running away Morocco to join a seemingly cultish Sufi order.

Cynthia Hopkins and Isabella Eberhardt by Adam Sekuler May 4, 2007

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.

Cynthia Hopkins: Must Don't Whip Um <font size=2>by Rick Miller</font> May 4, 2007

I’ll admit that few word-combinations fill me with greater dread than  “performance art, ” so it was perhaps unfortunate that the early descriptions I heard of Cynthia Hopkins labeled her as a performance artist. It’s not just the fact that a disproportionately high number of ill-conceived, tedious and self-indulgent on-stage catastrophes I’ve ever been forced to sit through carried that appellation.
