The Wild Called Maxx: and Other Tales from the Concrete Jungle
9:30 pm — Wednesday | April 6th
National Sawdust
The Curiosity Cabinet is thrilled to be presenting The Wild Called Maxx: and Other Tales from the Concrete Jungle at National Sawdust curated by Daniel Felsenfeld.

Our evening tells the story of Maxx​, a young and progressive woman, who is having trouble merging her creative identity with her lifestyle. She leaves her traditional job in the suburbs and journeys to the city. The unknown jungle of the metropolitan New York, full of monsters, is overwhelming to Maxx at first. Over time she finds ardent friends willing to help her find her creative voice.

The story is told through live music written by Whitney George and performed by The Curiosity Cabinet with special bass trombone soloist Russ Zokaites and vocalist Emily Iaquinta. Original artwork by Sammy Lopez  feature illustrated slides for each scene, creating a monstrous urban jungle fit for the 21st century with strong and vibrant colors that help create and shape Maxx's revolutionary world of discovery.
