You Have Not Seen It All

He's kind of the Daniel Johnston of performance art: Local entertainer Dan Carbone possesses an epic dedication to his art, which could be defined as "being super weird." Plenty of people (art school druggies, mostly) dabble in being super weird, but they don't have the stamina, the locked-jaw commitment, the self-knowledge, or the skill of Carbone. He's lauded by other estimable oddballs; George Kuchar says, among other things, that "his mind is a bridge where wisdom and infantilization cross deep waters." Critics, bless their hearts, do their best: SF Weekly's own former theater critic, Michael Scott Moore, said of one of tonight's offerings, There Be Monsters!, that it "almost made me fall out of my chair." The companion piece on the evening's roster is Up from the Ground, which concerns the South, an intense plant, and family issues.
