Singer, writer, and multimedia creator Joseph Keckler often zeroes in on moments of daily life and spins them into absurd and affecting underworld voyages. Joined by an intimate musical ensemble, he will share new pieces and highlights of his work in a concert presentation that “dances between comedy, commentary, and communion,” in conjunction with the premiere of a musical short of his GPS Song, filmed on-site in the Historic Asolo Theater during an 2021 artist residency at The Ringling. Keckler’s singular talent justaposes contemporary operatic musical virtuosity with ludicrously delightful narratives.
He has been hailed as “a major vocal talent [whose] range shatters the conventional boundaries... with a trickster’s dark humor” by The New York Times, the "best downtown performance artist" in New York by The Village Voice, and "hardly human" by The Observer.
