Smile Capital USA

Presented at the Auburn Bar as part of the Physical Therapy Series and recapped at the TransAlta Barn for the Feats Festival, Smile Capital USA toys with the paradoxes of small-town life. Combining pop music, recorded text, lots of physical and facial tension, and sardonic film work, Kloetzel digs into the (more and less) amusing hypocritical stances in the land of the “free.” It takes as its basis the 1948 ordinance by the Mayor of the City of Pocatello, ID, George Phillips, making it illegal not to smile in Pocatello.
