JERK/ THROUGH THEIR TEARS

Text by Dennis Cooper. Illustrations by Gisele Vienne. Music by Peter Rehberg.

JERK’ is a collaborative artist’s book and audio recording by director Gisele Vienne, author Dennis Cooper, musician Peter Rehberg and performer Jonathan Capdevielle, which translates a previous collaborative theater work into a violent multimedia disquisition on puppetry, serial killing and homoeroticism. The play and book are based on the Texan serial killer Dean Corll.

As in their theater works, JERK // THROUGH THEIR TEARS is a multi-faceted exploration of these artists’ combined interest in representing the emotional dissonance of confused, self-destructive, sensation seeking teenagers and the adults who romanticize their darkness, stylize their unhappiness, and take charge of their destruction.

The sound piece JERK (59’16’’) a free CD included in this book, was commissioned by Franck Smith & Philippe Langlois (ACR) and Danièle Rivière.
