“As One” Panel Discussion in Collaboration with Carolina Performing Arts

February 17, 2020 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

On February 19 & 20 Carolina Performing Arts is staging As One, a powerful chamber opera by Laura Kaminsky, Mark Campbell, and Kimberly Reed. The work features two performers who share the part of a sole transgender protagonist. The most performed new opera in the United States, As One is an artistic investigation of identity, memory, and voice.

But why is As One so popular, and how do its various iterations represent (and fail to represent) trans experience? Tracy Bersley (Department of Dramatic Art; Director, As One) and Marc Callahan (Department of Music; “Hannah Before,” As One) discuss their upcoming interpretation of the opera, and performance process and practice as a scholarly pursuit, along with Jacob Lau (Department of Women’s and Gender Studies). 

The panel will be facilitated by IAH Director Andrew Perrin.

 

Free and open to the public!
