STORY
freestars.gif

This is the story of a star-crossed pair of loves, somewhere on a minor terrestrial planet, orbiting a far-flung yellow dwarf sun.  In it, we learn of the epic conflict between extraterrestrial aliens and an army of long buried mummies, whose battle over the stolen moon was a source of much discord.  Ray guns were fired and pool noodles were struck in a violent skirmish set between golden pyramids of sizable wonder.  Caught between love and allegiance, two young paramours attempt to carve their own path, complete with fishing trips and a buffet of oysters.  Anubis, god of the underworld, attempts to sabotage their romantic destiny, but true love is always immortal - and our lovers prevail.

déCollage opened for the movie 'Fifth Element’ at Red Rocks Amphitheater. Max Geimer and Reed Fox storyboarded the above space opera narrative that mashed together the story of the Fifth Element, Romeo & Juliet, and the Gilgamesh Epic. [Watch it here!) Jacqueline Sophia Cordova was a mummy Juliet and Micah Bontrager played an alien Romeo. In one particular scene,  the "star crossed lovers" meet and fall in love while fishing for Dory and Nemo balloons in the sky. Max Geimer served oysters to the audience while aliens and mummies caused trouble in the Egyptian-themed scene . Lauren dances around in an oyster costume made by Natalie Wetzel who makes costumes for Flaming Lips, Miley Cyrus, & Temples. Jay Maike from DenVR filmed the whole show in an immersive 360 video that will be up soon too!

LYRICS

oh oh oh yea oh yea yea oh yabadabadabadeeda

I left you a note I wrote with my fingers and spilt coffee,

On the counter in the kitchen, next to the dinner bell of dried bagels.

I left you a note I wrote with my fingers and my hair,

On the wall in the shower, furry like animals

What if birds gathered our hair for nesting

And we shared all we think we own, but we don’t and act like we do.

“Carnal Canary, how’s your sleepin? How ya livin?”

“It’s a tweet tweet, chirp chirp chirp, honk honk, yeah”

When I go down to the watering hole,

Half my hair falls out; I guess I’ll stick it to the shower wall.

There’s Marcel in poverty with no nest and no home,

Let’s gather our hair in player piano rolls and cigar boxes.

Layla said, “Style is just the exploitation of limitation.”

And “Spoons make the best mirrors, but tend to turn you inside out.”

You rippled your wrinkles and spilled me your secrets

And we joked and hugged and cried our tears inside out.

You rippled your wrinkles and spilled me your secrets

And we joked and hugged and cried our tears inside out.

“Nightingale Menagerie, how’s your sleepin? How ya livin’?”

“It’s a tweet tweet, chirp chirp, honk honk, yeah”

Oh oh, yea yea, oh yaba daba daba daba daba
