The Eyeslicer is a mind-melting new TV show that will slice, dice, then mince your eyeballs into delicious ceviche. Join creators Dan Schoenbrun and Vanessa McDonnell for a one-night-only live event featuring a robot host, communal milk and cookies, and an episode presented in special ‘Smell-O-Vision.’
Each episode plays like a handcrafted mixtape blending boundary-pushing short form work into into a weird, wild, uninterrupted whole. From vérité documentary to amateur computer animation. Surreal horror to remix video art. Haunted high school yearbooks to Sasquatch birth rituals. Twisted bedtime stories to time traveling cats… if it sounds too crazy for the rest of the Internet, chances are you can find it on The Eyeslicer.
