Laugh Seriously is a collaborative show based on a weird tracking of subject and object within a fictional world of serious laughter. Duguid and Olson have excavated their gray matter and come up with a spine-tingling exhibition. The audience is invited to literally step directly into this duo’s work that features a laughing-gas chamber and an oxygen chamber, a homemade clown car, a joke wall, a chess game, and a map of what it all means.
While trying to fulfill the comedic rolls of the “straight man” and the “crack up” this team has created a serious of work that explores leisure, joke, and concentration. The opening itself will be a riot with a myriad of performances including a hundred yard dash. Please dress accordingly and bring proper identification
