Co-presented with The Happy Ending Music and Reading Series
What happens when an artist “goes public,” when a performer steps on stage? What is the transformation, the transmutation of the identity, from the person to the persona? The Happy Ending Music and Reading Series presents a special evening dedicated to the art , theory and practical application of persona. Through interwoven talks and performances, three dynamic guests—essayist Cécile Guilbert, singer and musician Cynthia Hopkins, multi- character performer Sarah Jones—will investigate how artists strive to cultivate and expose the most elusive and intangible aspects of their public personas.
