How To Be Narcissistic: A Workshop and Performance lead by Paul Shortt and Rhiannon Birdsall

“Your Narcissism is Medicore” -Timothy “Speed” Levitch, The Cruise

We spend so much time these days thinking about our online persona’s on sites like Facebook and Twitter, but what about how we present ourselves in our everyday life? Artist Paul Shortt and Rhiannon Birdsall will work with a group of volunteer participants to explore performative ways of presenting your authentic self and indulging in your own narcissism. Through a 3 hour work shop participants will explore through, writing, drawing, and performing ways in which one can truly call themselves narcissistic.
