Monkey Puzzle returns to the playa for year 3, but not before a little fund raising effort here on the home front. Any burners out there in the vacinity of Portland Oregon on Friday July 15th, make a point to stop by for a little pre-Burn excitement. Rest assured, you won't be disappointed...
Monkey Puzzle and Astral Vortex team up to bring you a spectacular one night only show: MONKEY NOIR! The collective mind of these talented entities conspires to develop an unforgettable thriller sure to rattle the moral foundation of our fair city...
MONKEY NOIR brings together the PDX Burning Man families for a sexy and explosive evening of magical suspense in the tradition of early film noir movies. Our theme harkens back to the dark, muted tone of Orson Welles’ classic Touch of Evil and stylistic elements of urban corruption from John Hustons’s The Asphalt Jungle. That’s right, Doll Face. The dim moody lights and pulsing, nervous soundtrack have never before seemed so SMOKING HOT! Imaginative and unsettling, MONKEY NOIR will spark your illicit passions on a shadowy night of megalomania. It’s theater for your mind…
