Image<br><br>Joe's Garage will be performed live on stage at the Kleine Komedie in Amsterdam on september 12. Sale starts now! Gail would not let it be performed as a theatrepiece so now it will be performed in concert.<br><br>Also:<br><br>10-9 Utrecht - Tivoli<br>11-9  Haarlem - Patronaat<br>13-9  Enschede - Muziekfestival<br><br>See for more info:<br><br>http://www.promptmusic.nl/<br><br>http://www.dekleinekomedie.nl <br><br>http://www.thetroupe.nl/home.htm<br><br>Joe's Garage van Frank Zappa in een concertante versie<br><br>‘… music is the best…’<br><br>De Central Scrutinizer, een robot-achtige variant op Big Brother, wil de mensen beschermen tegen de schadelijke effecten van de gruwelijke macht die muziek heet. Dat is het uitgangspunt van Joe's Garage, Frank Zappa’s befaamde satirische rockopera in drie bedrijven uit 1979. In dit epos verkent hij de wereld van groupies, regeringen, seksspeeltjes en katholieke schoolmeisjes.<br><br>  <br>Hoofdpersoon Joe is een gitarist die een garagebandje opricht, zijn vriendin Mary kwijtraakt aan de roadies van een commerciële popgroep, verliefd wordt op een robot, in de gevangenis belandt, luchtgitaar speelt, zijn vriendin terug vindt en ‘gelukkig’ wordt als glazuurspuiter in een muffin-bakkerij. Joe's Garage handelt over een totalitaire toekomst waarin muziek wordt verboden om de bevolking te onderdrukken. Het stuk steekt de draak met sociale controle, consumptiedrang, het misdadige bedrijfsleven, seksuele rolpatronen, religie en de leefstijl van rocksterren: al deze machten spannen samen tegen de hoofdpersoon, een heel gewone jongen die alleen maar gitaar wil spelen.<br><br>Het verhaal wordt verteld door middel van songs met weinig verhullende titels als ‘Catholic Girls’, ‘Crew Slut’, ‘Fembot in a Wet T-shirt’, ‘Why Does It Hurt When I Pee?’ en ‘Keep it Greasey’. De absurdistische, soms ronduit melige songteksten zijn gezet op muziek met het klassieke Zappa-geluid, waarin een hoofdrol is weggelegd voor de gitaar. De songs worden onderbroken door gesproken tekst van de futuristische Central Scrutinizer.<br><br>Deze versie van Joe's Garage is in juni 2003 in première gegaan tijdens het Juttersfestival in Wijk aan Zee. Onder muzikale leiding van Egon Kracht én met toestemming van de Erven Zappa heeft het gezelschap een voorstelling neergezet die vriend en vijand verrastte. Vanaf juni 2004 gaat Joe's Garage in reprise en zal een tournee maken langs theater- en concertzalen in Nederland en Duitsland.<br><br>Joe's Garage wordt uitgevoerd door The Troupe, bestaande uit: Frans van Deursen (zang), Jeroen Zijlstra (zang/trompet), Rutger Molenkamp (tenorsax), Jan-Peter Bast (keyboards), Freek Kroon (zang/drums), Milan Kracht (gitaar), Murk Jiskoot (percussie) en Egon Kracht (basgitaar).<br> <br> <br>

Thing-Fish has been performed live in London twice -- the first time, only an excerpt was performed, then in 2003, they performed the entire play (see also: Thing-Fish: is it a Myth or a Pancake?). Joe's Garage was also performed live, but as a rock concert (ala Pink Floyd's Wall concerts) by a group called Sex Without Nails Bros. (see also: Joe's Garage - Sex Without Nails Bros DVD !!!). As far as I know, Civilization Phaze III has not been performed yet. If you're looking for information on how you can buy the stage rights to JG and CP3, contact Gail Zappa, and propose a business deal. Others on this forum have mentioned making JG into a movie. I, myself have suggested that JG be an entirely rotoscoped animated movie, because I think that style would work really well with the story.

For either broadcast video or Internet streaming video, rotoscoping is the rotated projection of a sequence of usually photographed action image frames so that the artist can trace from the frame or create an image to superimpose on it. It can be thought of as "painting on movies" efficiently.
