On May 23, 2014, Elliot Rodger killed 6 people and injured 13 in a rampage motivated by his lack of success with women. Royal Osiris Karaoke Ensemble responds with a ritual-performance based on a cycle of found love stories — a meditation on masculinity, love and longing that confronts humanity's common search for love as we misunderstand it.

Royal Osiris Karaoke Ensemble creates multimedia installation-performances that explore the metaphysics and mythologies of love, desire, and courtship. ROKE was a member of The Public Theater’s Devised Theater Working Group, and has performed at FringeArts Philadelphia, UTR’s INCOMING! Series, Gibney Dance Center, and more.

The Art of Luv (Part 1): Elliot is created with support from The Public Theater’s Devised Theater Working Group, Gibney Dance Center, and The Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, and developed in residence with the Humanities and Entertainment Technology Departments at the New York City College of Technology. Royal Osiris Karaoke Ensemble is supported by Immediate Medium’s AGENCY program, which provides financial, administrative, and equipment support to emerging artists.
