Cynthia Hopkins presents "Articles of Faith"
Articles of Faith (New York Premiere)
June 15-17, 2017
"Charmingly eccentric."-The New York Times
An article of faith is a deeply held belief, theoretically unshakeable regardless of circumstance. It's like a flame that glows steadily from within a swinging lantern on a boat being tossed by the waves.
In late May 2015, Cynthia Hopkins emerged from Yosemite National Park to learn that a catastrophic fire had destroyed her home and work studio, obliterating all record of past performances and the items used to make them: costumes, wigs, instruments, thousands of pages of hand-written notes, lyrics, musical compositions, hard drives and computers.
It was as if the fire was saying, "It's time to tell a story unadorned, unmolested by theatrics, or wigs, or costumes, or lies. It's time to tell the truth that is always more complex, more uncanny than anything anyone could ever invent." Articles of Faith- created by Cynthia Hopkins in collaboration with designer Jeff Sugg-is that story.
