America, doing cultural work that will transform the way we see things"

you always wanted to know about the sanctity of marriage and how it leads
up to war!
The Idiot King will take you inside the monarch's palace
to witness God's visits and debates on government policies that are defining
the future of the world. Real facts are mixed up with wild exaggerations,
making it difficult to tell them apart.
The Idiot King combines video, sound design, and movement
with official and religious discourses to create a political satire about
the tragedy of slaughter in the name of God.
The Idiot King. You can be with him, against him, or laughing
