Welcome to samarskaya.com, a gateway and accumulation of various projects and initiatives that I have been involved with. Am based in Brooklyn, NY where it is Generally, input exceeds output, but the latest updates on are Blue Hammer () and out beyond this site U.S. protests over Minneapolis death rage on amid political finger-pointing ().
Posters are fresh and hot off the press for BLUE HAMMER: A Trans-Historical-Burlesque Dinner Theater.
BLUE HAMMER is a performance project that unfolds in a late-night cable television studio, between two live broadcasts: a cooking show, HOT POT, and BLUE HAMMER, presented by a host named Vin Pays who professes to have toured Africa during the Mau-Mau uprising in Kenya and the Belgian occupation of the Congo. A guest joins him, the former leading-lady of the African tour [and of Hammer Horror films] named Tabula Rasa, who appears only to disrupt and dispel, an angel of death whose memories of Africa are harder to maintain than Vin's nostalgia. The performance features three live video feeds, including GP S analysis, a prototype portable kitchen, and custom porcelain bowls.
The project is put together by the Creative Material Group. I want to send additional thanks to K-gun for being my model for the posters and perfectly channeling the vixen noir.
