Open Eye co-founder Michael Sommers' new work is inspired by the life and literature of Alfred Jarry. The French symbolist writer’s most famous character, UBU, provoked hilarity, scandal, and outrage with his grotesque trampling over cultural rules, norms, and conventions.
ALFRED AND ME discovers Alfred Jarry on his death bed, when his creation UBU pays him a last visit to administer Alfred's final hallucination.
