James Franco Is Premiering Some New Shit

April 4, 2013 | Kyle Chayka

As if James Franco wasn’t busy enough, working with Marina Abramović on a documentary, etc, etc, etc, he’ll be performing an art this Sunday at MoMa PS1. While still reeling over the widespread success of Spring Breakers, the performance is said to be based off of Chekov’s The Seagull, featuring a combination of theater, dance, video, live and prerecorded music, and a few surprises.

I like to think of James Franco’s forays into the art world as some kind of inside joke that I may not ever quite understand. Oh wait, it’s called Bird Shit and it’s based off of a play called The Seagull. Now I get it!

It also seems as the performance project may currently be underfunded, at least according to Indiegogo. Performances will take place at 2:30 pm and 5:00 pm in the MoMa PS1’s VW Dome and tickets are $10 in advance and $12 day of the event.
