*Felix Obelix is doing two completely different, unusual shows this weekend
in Durham. I hope to see you at one or both of them!*

*Wendy & Felix O.*

*Friday, February 17, 8:15pm, Manbites Dog Theatre (703 Foster Street,
Durham, NC) *– Felix Obelix will present a live performance of *Dreams of
the Rarebit Fiend: The Pet*, an animated short from the early 1920s by
Winsor McCay, one of the pioneers of early animation. Felix Obelix will
perform the live, original score to the film, on
organ/xylophone/glockenspiel/auxiliary percussion, in collaboration with
Billy Sugarfix.  This is part of the Strange Beauty Film
Festival<http://strangebeauty.org/>,
and will be included in the Friday night block of films. Tickets to this
performance/film showing can be purchased at the Manbites
Dog<http://www.manbitesdogtheater.org/389/> website
(.

*Saturday, February 18, 8:00pm, 108 Morris St., Durham, NC* – Felix Obelix
will open for a large-scale sound/art installation by Greensboro geniuses
Invisible <http://soundsinvisible.com/>. Entitled, *The New Obsolete,
*Invisible
will be set up in a Durham storefront for the month of February, doing
weekend performances on a variety of handmade analog/digital instruments.
 One of these will be the Selectric Piano – a typewriter rigged to “allow a
typist to become an experimental pianist. Each letter typed equals one note
played.”  In the spirit of Invisible, I am going to try, in addition to the
regular Felix Obelix song, to do some live oboe+loop pedal songs.
