BEG, BORROW, STEAL: Alter-Ego Maniacs

7.30pm. £3 & a drink on us.

A gathering of artists and their alter-egos for your entertainment and inquisition.

What is it that makes an alter-ego so appealing? Whether it's Marcel Duchamp as Rrose Selavy or Cindy Sherman in one of her many guises, artists are often drawn to becoming 'someone else' or presenting a side of themselves not seen in daily life.

From dragging up to dressing down, via pseudonyms and second life, a multitude of artists who masquerade as others will present themselves in their multiple forms. Featuring performances, interviews, discussion and some mental gymnastics as performers and audience flit between aliases; all are invited to interrogate the artists and their AKA personalities.

Artists on the night:

James Cawson
Eleanor Fogg
Laura Dee Milnes
Daniel Oliver (introducing Harvey Harris)
Amelia Stubberfield

More to be announced.
