HERstory, a performance-based experience by Marcel Alcalá, was born May 8, 2015 at SPiN Standard, the Standard Hotel, Downtown LA. Based on the entertainment industry and social media’s fetish of celebrity culture, Alcalá performs as the clown. The history of the clown as an archetype plays an important role on talking about class and McDonalization of society. This piece speaks directly to concept of entrance and paparazzi flashes on the red carpet.
