oKTOBERSHIP / SHIP OF FOOLS was a site-specific event produced by Aztec Economy on board a decommissioned steamship, the LILAC, docked off the Hudson River in the West Village in Manhattan, NYC. With cabin rooms filled with visual art, a side mast of video projections and a main deck for live music acts and performance art, oKTOBERSHIP was a vehicle to present Aztec Economy’s short piece, Ship of Fools, which charted the lost-at-sea quadruple mutiny of 4 members on a doomed vessel: a mad Navigator, a sadistic First Mate, an errant Deckhand, and a word-plagued Captain.
