Felix Bernstein

Felix Bernstein debuted on YouTube with his disarming and satirical coming-out video in 2008, going on, in later videos, to play Amy Winehouse, Lamb Chop, and Leopold (Peter) Brant. With Gabe Rubin, he made the films Unchained Melody and Boyland. Together they directed and starred in Red Krayola’s opera Victorine at the 2012 Whitney Biennial. Bernstein’s critical and uncritical writings have appeared in Bomb, The Awl, Hyperallergic, and The Believer. In fall 2015, his operetta Adonis or Bieber Bathos Elegy will have its premiere at the Whitney, and his poetry collection Burn Book will be out from Nightboat.
