Pop Waits is an athletic, participatory, clown provocation to write a song. Partners and performers Malic White and Molly Brennan both struggle with depression and rely on music to yank themselves out of despair. With the help of a live band and the audience, White and Brennan call on the powers of their heroes, Iggy Pop and Tom Waits, to write a song of their own. Through monologues, movement pieces and performance of their rock heroes' most influential songs, Brennan strips away her penchant for theatricality, while White discovers that building a larger-than-life persona might be the key to survival.
