​DEC 28th Creative Director Matthew Marcum featured in The LA Times and The Daily Press ahead of OFF BROADWAY PREMIER

"I call it a vocal collage," says creative director and performance artist Matthew Marcum as he explains his latest show "Pollock: A Frequency Parable," which opens off-Broadway Jan. 3 at The Soho Playhouse in New York. Presented as a special engagement with writer and director Billy Rae Brewton's play, "A Beast/A Burden," entitled, "Nature and Purpose," Marcum provides the nature of Jackson Pollock, while Ben Hethcoat finds purpose in his role as Christopher Burden. Both shows were standouts at the Hollywood Fringe Festival, with Pollock nabbing a Hollywood Encore Producers Award and Burden bringing home a Best of Broadwater nod. Darren Lee Cole, Artistic Director of the Soho Playhouse and Executive Director of the NYC ENCORE Series partnered with Hollywood ENCORE Producer's Award Executive Director, Matthew Quinn, in selecting the two shows as a double bill that pays tribute to two of the art worlds most provocative players."

​JAN 5th Pollock: A Frequency Parable featured in The New York Journal

"In an off-Broadway double bill dedicated to two of modern art’s most revered luminaries, Jackson Pollock, and Christopher Burden, performance artist Matthew Marcum, and the cast of “A Beast/A Burden,” do not disappoint in “Nature and Purpose.” During a special limited engagement run at The SoHo Playhouse, Marcum is electrifying as Jackson Pollock, in his rock-opera “Pollock: A Frequency Parable,” while Ben Hethcoat, who bears a striking resemblance to Christopher Burden, touches on the often negated humanity of an artist primarily known for taking a bullet for art’s sake…literally."

Pollock: A Frequency Parable receives the award for Artistic Interpretation from the St. Louis Fringe Festival 2017. 

""Matt Marcum's Pollock: A Frequency Parable, winner of the festival's Artistic Interpretation award, perfectly embodies the exploration of art and performance that defines Fringe theater. The show is a nearly immersive experience that envelopes the audience, stimulating multiple senses. Visually and audibly stunning, Marcum brings Jackson Pollock's art and philosophy to life by combining mediums. Video of the artist at work and quotations from Pollock reflecting his approach and motivation are accompanied by rave-like lighting effects as well as original music enhanced by live vocal jazz. The result of Marcum's multi-sensory show is truly modern art in its purest, most active form -- built on principle, influenced by perception, and derivative of nothing. The effect is mesmerizing and wholly original."
