Wednesday, June 12 | Show @ 7PM | Party @ 8:30PM
Created & Performed by DEEPALI GUPTA
This show is part of the ANT Fest Lounge Series, which features ANT Fest Alums in concert! A cabaret retrospective of a tortured genius who destroyed herself for her art, performed by the artist herself. DEEPALI GUPTA is just dying to sing for you.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
DEEPALI GUPTA is a writer and performer making music-driven theater across New York City. Her work explores themes of mania and insanity, and their relationship to femininity. She makes work in an attempt to unravel the warped weave of narratives surrounding mental disorder and neurodivergence in contemporary America. Her music has been heard at venues such as The Public Theater, Joe’s Pub, Ars Nova, Lincoln Center Theater, The Bushwick Starr and Judson Memorial Church — as well as many backyards and living rooms across the city. Recent and ongoing projects as a performance artist include No Way To Say Goodbye, Over(Reverberating) and I Love You Stranger. Recent and ongoing projects as a composer include original music for Madonna Col Bambino (written by Sarah Einspanier, directed by Caitlin Sullivan), Cute Activist (written by Milo Cramer, directed by Morgan Green), Ski End (created by Piehole, directed by Tara Ahmedinejad) and MINOR CHARACTER (created by New Saloon, directed by Morgan Green). Her writing has been published in Moon Missives (an astrology quarterly) and Musical Theater Today. She is an affiliated artist with The Civilians and Target Margin Theater, as well as a member of the New Georges Jam and the BMI Advanced Musical Theatre Songwriting Workshop.
