Join us for a spectacular program of music, dance, song, spoken word and performance art as we celebrate life and honor death in all its forms and manifestations.   

Featured Performance Artist
We are thrilled to announce this year’s featured performance artist Pat Oleszko!
Following in the traditions of El Día de los Muertos, Oleszko is sure to engage humor and prompt us all, both dead and alive, to laugh a’loud. Oleszko’s work includes elaborate costumes, props and inflatables all incorporated into solo performantz. From the personal to the political, her work is an exorcise thru humor. Oleszko is a much awarded artist having received 4 NEA grants, 4 NYFA’s, the Rome Prize, a Guggenheim, the DAAD (Berlin) and a Bessie for Sustained Achievement. Oleszko has taught at The Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown and we are fortunate beyond the beyond to have her back in town for our Dead of the Dead Performing Arts Festival!
You don’t want to miss this performance. Seriously.
