2014 Biennial Performances

Donelle Woolford:
Dick’s Last Stand
at Duffy’s Tavern, Lincoln, Nebraska

Wed, May 21, 2014  8 PM

Location: Duffy’s Tavern, Lincoln, Nebraska

Donelle Woolford is taking the Whitney Biennial on the road in a series of off-site performances at venues around the country. Woolford’s performance explores the central role given to the male sexual organ in both American art and politics, perpetuating the tradition of phallic humor in popular culture. It is a reenactment of Richard Pryor’s stand-up routine from the last episode of his short-lived 1977 television show, in which he continually played with the notion that Richard Pryor, comedian, was someone who could not be pinned down or controlled. Dick’s Last Stand honors Pryor’s brash political humor and marks its return to the live stage, with Woolford playing Pryor playing Pryor playing Mudbone—across generations and in drag!

Please note: This event takes place at Duffy’s Tavern, 1412 O Street, Lincoln, Nebraska 68508. Contact the host venue for ticketing information. Ticket charges may vary by venue.
