Event Description

The Residents, in collaboration with media artist John Sanborn, present the world-premiere live performance of their landmark 1988 album God in Three Persons. The story of a ruined evangelist and his twisted obsession with a pair of gender-fluid conjoined twins he claims are miracle workers, the album is among the most critically acclaimed in The Residents’ catalogue, yet it has never been performed live. Compositing the lead vocalist using an innovative video-projection platform, this theatrical adaptation is a propulsive, hard-rock oratorio with a deep Southern twang. Swinging in style from animated cartoon to film noir, it’s a twisted tale of moral corruption that takes its audience on a kaleidoscopic journey to the dark side of human desire.



Organized at The Museum of Modern Art by Ron Magliozzi, Curator, and Sophie Cavoulacos, Assistant Curator, Department of Film; produced by Sean Egan, Senior Producer, Film Exhibitions and Projects, with Carson Parish, Theater Manager.
