The Success of Failure (or, The Failure of Success) with Jim Findlay and Jeff Sugg, and directed by DJ Mendel, World Premiere/Walker Commission
“Blurs the edges of confession and performance, concert and play, memory and creation… . Hopkins pulls off the impossible … —Time Out New York
Singer /performer /director Cynthia Hopkins (Accidental Nostalgia, Must Don’t Whip ’Um) has built a large local following for her unique style of contemporary music-theater. The final chapter of Accidental Trilogy takes her investigation of memory, loss, and personal history to futuristic, intergalactic heights in this music-soaked, beguiling, and humorous telling of an ancient epic imagined as a live sci-fi film. Supported by her familiar and brilliant collaborators—video artists/theatrical designers Jeff Sugg and Jim Findlay (Wooster Group)—Hopkins takes us on an immersive exploration of time, space, and the pros and cons of evolution.
