Radically Shameless: Creating and Performing the Original One-Person Show, Unzipped
MetadataShow full item record
Unzipped , an autobiographical collection of original monologues and songs, is the story of my coming-of-age as a queer Chinese-American. The best way I can describe it is as a theatre-concert: theatrical storytelling intertwined with dynamic, staged musical performance. The music all exists in the realm of indie folk and indie rock, composed for a band with keyboard, guitar, bass, and drums. The script of Unzipped is written to involve the performer’s whole self. The performer has to personify the main character’s psychology, embody other characters in the plot, and intuit with the musicians.
