In anticipation of the Risk/Reward Festival next Saturday (June 19 @ BodyVox!), we’re presenting daily profiles of the artists involved.
Today: Angela Fair (performing in the 5pm showcase).
Angela was a crowd favorite at Risk/Reward last year, and makes solo performances that deal with obsession, dissemblance, romantic love and other prevalent mental and emotional pathologies. She explores characters through video, monologue, movement and power karaoke that satirize the narcissism in human experience. Her work has been presented at On the Boards’ Northwest New Works festival.
Angela is also an alumna of the outrageous, beloved House of Cunt, whose presence still lingers over the Portland performance scene like a mythical bejeweled beast of legend.
Check out Angela performing in this video she made with Grace Carter. I hear this character will be featured in her performance at Risk/Reward... we can't WAIT to see it.
