Acclaimed puppeteer Jeghetto (Tarish Pipkins) has created a one-of-a-kind performance based on the music of Billy Strayhorn, renowned composer and lyricist who had roots in Hillsborough, North Carolina. The performance, which will incorporate visuals designed for the intimate, high-tech space, will be followed by a discussion with the artist. This project was funded in part by the NC State LIVE Mini-Grant Program and is co-presented by NC State LIVE, the NCSU Libraries and Arts Studies, part of Interdisciplinary Studies and humanities and social sciences. This event is free and open to the public; however, registration is required from this link.
