About

Pratt’s School of Art and Pratt Presents bring you a special evening featuring multifaceted artist John Cameron Mitchell. Mitchell is best known for originating the role of Hedwig in Hedwig and the Angry Inch. His most recent work, Anthem: Homunculus, a musical podcast, was released last fall to great reviews. Join us for a compelling discussion about Mitchell’s creative process moderated by independent filmmaker and School of Art Interim Dean Jorge Oliver. A reception will immediately follow the conversation.

Mitchell has directed four feature films: How to Talk to Girls at Parties (2018), Rabbit Hole (2010), Shortbus (2006), and the legendary Hedwig and the Angry Inch (2001). His numerous awards include a Teddy Award for Best Feature Film, a Sundance Directing Award, a Drama League Award, an Obie Award, and a Special Tony Award.

Mitchell’s critically acclaimed musical podcast Anthem: Homunculus stars himself, as well as Laurie Anderson, Madeline Brewer, Marion Cotillard, Cynthia Erivo, Ben Foster, Patti Lupone, Alan Mandell, Nakhane, Denis O'Hare, and Glenn Rose.

The School of Art Dean’s Conversation is supported by Pratt Presents and the Longfellow/Dulmage Fund. Co-presented by the Film/Video Department, the Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, and Queer Pratt.
