The 5th incarnation of BEG, BORROW, STEAL came in the form of a gathering of artists and their alter-egos for the audience’s 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 presented themselves in their multiple forms. Featuring performances, interviews, discussion and some mental gymnastics as performers and audience flitted between aliases; all were invited to interrogate the artists and their AKA personalities.

Featuring:

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

Curated and hosted by Laura Dee Milnes, Laura Em, Tony Jazz, Miss Nilsem, Donna Kebab & Chips and Dee MacDonald
