REAL TALK / KIP TALK Series to Continue This April at Abrons Arts Center

REAL TALK / KIP TALK is a series of live talk shows about the state of contemporary performance in New York City, conceived and conceptualized by Kippy Winston, media mogul, Internet sensation, and citizen of the world.

The third episode will be taped Apr 8 at 8pm at the Abrons Arts Center in the Experimental Theatre.

REAL TALK / KIP TALK explodes the theatrical form and invites audiences to take part in a live, taped talk show that is equal parts fireside chat and greenroom grit. Special guests include Starr Busby, and a panel of yet-to-be-announced artist activists.

Be ready to step and repeat, take a seat, and enjoy a treat. Come for the laughs, stay for the real talk, and leave with a swag bag and a swagger in your stride.

Real Talk / Kip Talk Episode #2 is conceived by Kippy Winston and directed by Sarah Hughes. Real Talk / Kip Talk features set and lighting design byChristopher Bowser, live video by David Pym, sound and stage managed by Skylar Fox, with production assistance by Charlotte Murray. "Artistic Directors on Divans Dunking Donuts" is filmed by Eva von Schweinitz and executive produced by Eliza Bent.

KIPPY WINSTON (conceptual design)
World citizen and internet sensation, Kippy Winston is a media mogul who is everywhere and nowhere representing everything and everyone. As a mover and shaker and cultural tastemaker, Winston has high fived with world leaders, strutted down catwalks, danced in piazzas, and experienced more live performance than this Kippy would care to admit. Linguist and lover of puns, Kippy's musings on art, life, and la cultura have taken on unique forms over the years and have included a web log, or flog (faux blog), a late gossip column "Just Ask Kippy," and of course the seminal-and semi-autumnal-publication The Radish (Prelude '13 and '14). Most recently, Winston has steered a robust press agency repping all manner of artisti known and about-to-be-discovered garnering reviews in such esteemed outlets as the Gray Lady among others. An Andy Rooney of the PoMo age, a Gadfly of the Gilded era, a Muckraker with the Mostess, and an Elaine Stritch that'll have you in stitches, Kippy transcends genre, form, and content. Journalism meets hedonism in Winston's word play(s). [wink!] "Hey world. Here I am. Kippy Winston and loving life."
