Chubby Buddy by Erika Yeomans
Chubby Buddy (the last castrato) is an experimental narrative based on the story of a man who gives up his career and marriage in order to act upon some peculiar impulses. Chubby Buddy was originally conceived as a live sound project for the New York Gallery AC Project Room’s Sound Series in 2001. Actor Mot Filipowski performed the text with cinematic sound bites and musical ambience created by turntablist DJ Cruzmissile. In 2003, the sound project was re-imagined as a short art film.
