C’MON BABY STROKE IT! THE TENNIS MUSICAL (WHERE LOVE IS EVERYTHING)
Thursday, August 26 & Saturday, August 28
(2021, DCP, approx 30 min) Created by A.P. Looze. Featuring the amazing collaborative talents of Dan Dukich, Katie Burgess, Jay Eisenberg, and Diver Van Avery. Filming and editing support by Ben Kreibich.
C’Mon Baby Stroke It! is a collection of original songs and music videos celebrating love, queer sexuality, and trans embodiment inspired by the riveting game of tennis. From the perils of alcoholism, to the raunchy gay relationship between doubles partners, the messages from a Teddy Bear Oracle, the true meaning of ping pong, and the whimsical lessons of a tennis ball throttling through the galaxy, this musical experience will make your foot tap, your heart sing, and hell, maybe even inspire you get your butt out on the court and whack a few balls around. Some have called this a sports documentary. Under a certain light, this very well may be true.
A.P. Looze is a fiscal year 2020 recipient of an Artist Initiative grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board and the Metropolitan Regional Arts council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
