Risk/Reward Artist Profile #6: PEOPLE PERSON
Triple threat writer/actor/solo performers Joe von Appen and Angela Fair combine forces as PEOPLE PERSON, using the buddy system to see if they can monologue their way out of humanity’s long dark night of the soul.
Angela was a member of performance art barn burners House of Cunt and has created a name for herself with a distinct brand of psycho-sexual social satire, called “creepy” and “uncanny” by area critics. Joe has shared the stage with Reggie Watts and The Larry Sanders Show guest Tim Miller, and has toured his work along both coasts, opening for indie-rock darlings Starfucker and Why? To date, PEOPLE PERSON has performed exclusively underground shows including a friend’s benefit and an installation series at Disjecta.
We're psyched to see these two perform together and provide them with a larger platform for their work. We've loved them as solo artists for years, and they're both Risk/Reward alums - Joe in 2009 and Angela in 2009 and 2010. We're not saying we had anything to do with nudging them toward a collaboration, but we're glad it happened nonetheless.
