Donna Missal 'Keep Lying' by Lydia Garnett

Promonews - 26th Mar 2020

Lydia Garnett brings Olivia Norris's extraordinary creation WET MESS to the screen for the first time in this refreshingly unabashed short film cum video for New Jersey singer-songwriter Donna Missal's Keep Lying.

WET MESS is the drag persona that Norris created for the 'Lip-sync 1000' contest at East London disco-pub The Glory last year - and she reached the final. In this first collaboration with Garnett - a photographer and director who is also head of communications at Somesuch - Norris interrogates her grotesque comic alter-ego in the relative privacy of her bathroom, where she starts to lipsync the Donna Missal song.

"This is a song that Liv has been performing in drag, and Donna gave Liv permission to explore the performance in a video context," explains Garnett, about her film of a challenging art performance that could only be described as refreshing relief and a bracing shot of homemade alternative art and culture in our current locked-down world.
