Dazzle Camouflage

Dazzle_JKT_Thumbnail_72dpiDazzle Camouflage: Spectacular Theatrical Strategies for Resistance and Resilience offers two profiles of contemporary theater artists, Jenny Romaine and The Eggplant Faerie Players, generating analysis about their shared transformative theatrical strategies. Using oral history, archival research, and experiences working with these artists, the author tells their stories and identifies the roles of Dazzle Camouflage, Re-Mixing History, and Rehearsing Resistance in their work. Both profiles are interwoven with progressive Jewish and Queer culture and politics.

REVIEWS/INTERVIEWS/PUBLICATIONS

“By evoking and drawing us into these alternative worlds, Nepon’s book helps us imagine a world we want to live in – one of expansive gender possibilities, creative hilarity, and wild justice. Nepon provides a vital service by documenting how these artists remix, recycle, and rearrange traditions and rituals into contemporary queer culture, thus allowing all of us to connect to our pasts as we set out to create more fabulous futures.”
