We sent all the performers of the 2016 Classic City Fringe Festival the same 7 Questions. We wanted a deeper look into who they are, their goals, what inspires them, and what all lead them to performing at this years festival. Here’s what Kitty Stardust had to say:
7 Questions: Kitty Stardust
Q: Why do you identify as a “fringe” artist?
A: I like to touch on a variety of genres and a lot of obscure things tend to inspire me. I love the Avant Garde and I always aim to push people’s buttons and trigger their imagination.
Q: What big goal do you hope to accomplish in the next 5 years?
A: I would like to be a successful performer in any capacity. To make a living doing what you love is a beautiful and satisfying thing.
Q: How do events like the Fringe Festival help you as a fringe artist/performer?
A: It helps me get in touch with new audiences which inspires me on all cylinders.
Q: How is an event like the Fringe Festival good for the community?
A: It’s exposing people to things they didn’t know were available to them I think. I think there is a lot of art we miss out on simply because we don’t know where to look for it. Having a smorgasbord of art and performance style like this is getting people exposed to art. That’s important. Art and all forms of art is sooooo important to have in one’s life.
Q: What Inspires you?
A: Watching other people pour their hearts into their passions.
Q: What lead you to choose to perform the piece you will be doing?
A: I love to dance. I love to be ridiculous.
Q: What was your first experience being a performer?
A: I’ve been singing and playing piano since age 4, I grew up in the theatre. I guess you could say my very first experience might’ve been lost on me considering it’s always been a part of who I am.
