Dana Plato's Cave

Uffe Isolotto

3rd iteration March 6-7, 2015 @ Toves, Copenhagen

Opening Friday March 6th, 19:00-21:00


Weekends is proud to present the third of three iterations of Uffe Isolotto’s Dana Plato’s Cave.

Dana Plato’s Cave is a graphic novel depicting the rise and demise of child actress Dana Plato.

Starting out as Kimberly Drummond, the lovely teenage daughter in the sitcom Diff’rent Strokes, Dana was the symbol of innocence and virtue.

She soon plummeted into a lifestyle of substance abuse and sexual escapades that eventually cost Dana her stardom – and her life.

Most of the visual material for the graphic novel is produced by Kristin Farrell, a former party girl, who makes pornographic CG images, either commissioned or based on her own sexual endeavors.

The third iteration of Dana Plato’s Cave will take place at TOVES, in Copenhagen, where a scenographic installation will be on view in an underground facility. Part nightclub, part cave and part disintegrating comic.
