LanceLife (Portland, OR) – We’re not Here to Play Games
The LanceLife crew are more well-known in the comedy circuit than the contemporary art world, which is what made us so excited to receive their application for the Risk/Reward Festival. We’re expecting some whip-smart insights into the realm of personal empowerment and a subversive glance at our culture of winning at all costs. Following in the footsteps of past festival favorites who often perform in clubs (like Janet Pants, Joe Von Appen and Angela Fair), LanceLife is a real wildcard in this year’s lineup – which is exactly what we love to see. Here’s some more info on LanceLife to whet your appetite…
Wallace Fessler and Joshua David Fisher have spent over a decade exploring the nexus between comedy and semi-realist performance art. Our evolution can be tracked from Portland’s first fake, but not fake, not televised, but then televised late night talk show (The Famous Mysterious Actor Show), through absurdist sketch comedy (The Portland Oregon Them), and on to our current project, an examination into the nature of ‘homage’, The LanceLife Comprehensive Total Life System.
Created by internal power mentor and global inspiration pioneer Lance Banks, The LanceLife Comprehensive Total Life System changes lives for the best though the positive of power thinking.
LanceLife will show you how to stop being a pawn by doubling down and swinging for the fences until your life hits the jackpot in the presentation of “We’re not Here to Play Games”.
