Shia LaBeouf's Next Performance Act Focuses on Binge Culture
It's unclear what he'll be doing, but it'll take place at BingeFest, a 24-hour pop culture event, in Sydney.
Shia LaBeouf is staging another performance-art piece.
The American Honey actor, who has been known to stage bizarre performances, is teaming up with artists Nastja Sade Ronkko and Luke Turner (collectively known as Campaign Book) to take part in the first-ever BingeFest, a 24-hour pop culture event being held at Australia's Sydney Opera House, reports Art Net magazine. The celebration will run from Dec. 17-18.
According to the BingeFest website, the event is "a festival of television, performance art, podcast trailblazers, video game battles and internet lols." The site doesn't specify what the trio will be doing, saying only that their set starts Sunday and goes from midnight until 6 a.m. But given the theme, LaBeouf should have no issues art binging.
In November, the Transformers star organized a performance-art piece titled #ALLMYMOVIES, in which he watched his own movies consecutively in reverse chronological order for 72 hours at the Angelika Film Center in New York. He even took a nap at one point.
In 2014, he held an exhibition titled #IAmSorry. The public performance invited guests to tell him anything they wanted as he sat in a room with a paper bag over his head. That followed his red-carpet appearance at the Berlin Film Festival, where he wore a paper bag on his head, declaring, "I am not famous anymore."
The actor will also be joined by Community creator Dan Harmon and Serial podcast executive producer Julie Snyder at BingeFest.
But if you can't head Down Under to catch LaBeouf in December, you can always check out his latest film project, American Honey, in theaters now. He stars alongside Riley Keough and newcomer Sasha Lane.
