Heavy Metal Parking Lot- The Musical

HEFFINGTON MOVES MOCA’s  final project for Engagement Party was the punk-rock dance event HEAVY METAL PARKING LOT: THE MUSICAL, a wild collage of performances inspired by the influence of MTV on small-town America during the years it first debuted. Inspired by the 1986 documentary of the same name chronicling the tailgating antics of heavy-metal fans, HEAVY METAL PARKING LOT paid homage to the MTV that gave hope to a generation by offering it an escape from the banality of everyday life and the embrace of a collective identity through music. The work featured music by WE ARE THE WORLD and Zig Zags; fashion by Moon Spoon Saloon; sculpture by Zwilling Haas and Mindy LeBrock; lighting by Ryan Granich; and styling by Diana Contreras. Hair by Yuya Takahashi.

Lighting by: J.R. Mankoff
Produced by: Kristin Campbell-Taylor
