In their solo cabaret debut, actress Chessa Metz and music director Eli Kaynor take an unapologetic stab at the traditional one-person show. With a powerhouse voice and a pulls-no-punches persona, Metz gives a darkly humorous deconstruction of 22 years of her “first” experiences, set to Kaynor’s unconventional soundtrack of reimagined favorites.
Fellows: Eli Kaynor – music director, cellist & Chessa Metz – writer, actor
Genre: Cabaret theater, solo show, contemporary music concert
The William R. Kenan Jr. Fellowship, a yearlong residency for select graduates of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, pairs young artists with Lincoln Center Education's (LCE) master Teaching Artists to develop their artistic facilitation and teaching artistry with students of all ages. After a semester-long intensive with their mentors, the Kenan Fellows culminate their experience by developing original performances in LCE’s intimate Clark Studio Theater.
LCE is proud to celebrate the 16th anniversary of this prestigious fellowship, and you’re invited to attend this year’s performances by our 2017 Kenan Fellows. These insightful and inspiring cross-disciplinary collaborations push the boundaries of live performance in thoughtful and dynamic ways. The performances run from December 20 to 22 and are free and open to the public.
The Kenan Fellowships at Lincoln Center are endowed by The William R. Kenan, Jr. Charitable Trust and administered by The University of North Carolina School of the Arts’ Office of Student Affairs in partnership with the Thomas S. Kenan Institute for the Arts.
