ROKE at Farley Post Office (2012)

Royal Osiris Karaoke Ensemble a/k/a ROKE (Tei Blow and Sean McElroy) is a musical priesthood that explores the psychic terrain of self-help movements at the turn of the 20th century. Through a ritual performance of original songs, compulsive drinking, and video projection, ROKE weaves together cult manifestos, amateur egyptology, corporate presentations and self-help seminars into a spectacular karaoke experience.

(Applied Creativity founder Andrew Horwitz curated ROKE into “The Future At The End of the World” exhibit at the Farley Post Office)
