John Waters by Danny Fields
“When I was young there were beatniks. Hippies. Punks. Gangsters. Now you’re a hacktivist. Which I would probably be if I was 20. Shuttin’ down MasterCard. But there’s no look to that lifestyle! Besides just wearing a bad outfit with bad posture. Has WikiLeaks caused a look? No! I’m mad about that. If your kid comes out of the bedroom and says he just shut down the government, it seems to me he should at least have an outfit for that.”
- John Waters on the sorry style of today’s rebels (emphasis mine)
Part of Youngershoot, our kid-friendly festival within the festival, Galumpha combines stunning acrobatics, striking visual effects, physical comedy and inventive choreography to form a world of imagination, beauty, muscle, and merriment.
