Vaquera, Ding Dong the Witch is Dead at MoMA PS1
New York City-based fashion collective Vaquera and director Leah Victoria Hennessey, accompanied by an ensemble of artists and collaborators, present a play inspired by the Broadway musical Wicked (2003-Present). Known for creating “fashion fan fiction,” Vaquera aims to subvert luxury and tell stories with clothing. Through this performance, they explore how an original text, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum, has been filtered through various media including the film The Wizard of Oz (1939), the fan fiction novel Wicked (1995) by Gregory Maguire, and the subsequent musical, demonstrating how new narratives can be created using existing archetypal characters.
