LOS ANGELES, CA – Cirque Du Soleil will be debuting a new show based on the life and music of GG Allin this month. The new show, Cirque Du Soleil: Eat My Fuc, is named after one of Allin’s earliest releases.
“For the longest of times, we here at the Cirque Du Soleil, we have been very much fans of (Allin),” said Cirque Du Soleil Creative Director, Dirk Guthere. “We had to begin our very popular and magnifique music based, how you say, tent parties with something safe, and boring like the Beatles, before we could branch out into something more artistic and beautiful and, how do you say, bat shit crazy? Is that the right term? Because (Allin) was fou. Very Crazytown, as you say. Have you some of his songs? I love them, but holy shit. Anyway, yeah, it’s going to be a whole new experience for Cirque Du Soleil fans.”
Cirque Du Soleil: Eat My Fuc will feature much of the themes and that made Allin famous including nudity, performers self-mutilating, smearing feces on themselves and others. The audience is encouraged to bring raincoats in case blood, urine or feces shoots out in to the audience.
“As per our usual shtick, you know, the clowns of fuckin’ Cirque Du Soleil are going to do a lot of the heavy fucking lifting here when it comes to representing (Allin’s) fucking vision,” said head clown Ric DuWitten. “(The Clowns) will be heading out into the fucking crowd, the crowd full of fucking idiots, and the clowns will be performing fucking some crazy rituals. Fuck man. I don’t want to give anything away, but if you’re not fucking cool with scat play, I’d stay the fuck out of section 104. If you know what I mean. And if you don’t know what I mean I’m talking about shit. We are going to spray shit out over section 104.”
Producers say they will stick true to Allin’s memory and are encouraging their performers to take large amounts of drugs before, during, and after the show.
“The best thing about doing a show like this, is that it will never be the same,” said Cirque Du Soleil: Eat My Fuc performer, Stacey Kolipaka “Depending on what drugs are used on a given night, as well as the amounts taken, the performance will vary from night to night. I mean it is kind of a double edge sword, because if the Ringmaster goes out there tripping balls on a combination of LSD and cough syrup, he might make some magic that LSD alone can never recreate. So we do have that going against us. But still, it’s going to be pretty amazing.”
Although he was a controversial figure while alive, Cirque Du Soleil producers say Allin represents the “freedom of self expression that aligns with Cirque Du Soleil’s philosophy.”
“If there is any one thing Cirque Du Soleil stands for it is expression. And also very large amounts of blood,” said Guthere. “Blood is always spilled before every Cirque Du Soleil performance in the back tents. It is… how you say, la cérémonie… ceremony for performers to cut themselves before to go to face the audience. Now we will be doing that in front of the audience!”
The show will feature a number of Allin’s songs and spoken word tracks including “A Dead Fuck,” “Kill Kill Kill,” Drink From the Pissing Snake Mouth,” “Suck My Ass It Smells,” “Cunt Sucking Cannibal,” and “Drug Whore.”
“We’ll be doing all the classics, but in a new and refreshing way,” said Cirque Du Soleil music director, Gabriel Wayne. “Just wait till you hear our version of ‘Cunt Sucking Canibal.’ You’d be surprised how tender of a love song it becomes in the right key. And when the anthropomorphic penis sings it. Tears. Literal tears.”
Allin’s estate has neither condoned nor condemned the Cirque Du Soleil show, releasing a statement that read “fuck you.”
