The Golden Penthouse

[ Description | Video ]

A Great Getaway for a Lifetime

A Multimedia Performance Project by Mabel Negrete with John Blanco and Mary Ann Brooks

As part of the Humane Slaughter Acts Performance Festival, The Golden Penthouse is satirical participatory performance. The piece juxtaposes existing architectural and historical features of the Slaughterhouse Space, with today’s degrading punitive methods and economical incentives implemented by the Department of Correction and Rehabilitation of California.

Dedicated and Thanks to my brother, Jose Negrete, and all humans surviving indefinite sentences to life at the California’s Cage System.
