WEDNESDAY is a queer-fantasia where music, movement, and speech are inseparable. In this dance-theatre speculative documentary, Live Arts 2019-2020 Randjelović/Stryker Resident Commissioned Artist Raja Feather Kelly and the feath3r theory search for the true motivations behind an infamous Brooklyn bank robbery; the centerpiece of the 1975 cinematic-drama “Dog Day Afternoon”. The piece re-centers the story of Raja’s relationship to American Trans-woman Liz Eden, for whom the character Leon in the film is loosely based—and the reason why the character Sonny conspires to rob the bank.
