Praised for his “speed, force, brilliance and surprise” (The Washington Post), Mark Dendy’s work is known for its searing social and political commentary and intense physicality. Elvis Everywhere scrutinizes society’s obsession with celebrity, ultimately drawing chilling parallels to today’s politics.
Inspired by an interview with Donald Rumsfeld on his encounter with Elvis Presley in Las Vegas, Dendy’s Elvis Everywhere utilizes the arc of Elvis’s life as a metaphor for the United States and its current turbulent political atmosphere. Elvis Everywhere is supported by the Jacob’s Pillow Creative Development Residency program.
