Charlotte Street Foundation identifies the needs and fuels the evolution of an ever-changing multidisciplinary arts ecosystem, acting as its primary provocateur. We cultivate the contemporary, the exceptional, and the unexpected in the practice of artists working in and engaging with the Kansas City Art Community
Mazzy Mann is a Kansas City based performance artist whose work explores the loss of identity through themes of existential horror, Film Noir, vaudeville, old soul, jazz, and folklore. Through combining archetypes of 1950s and 60s American horror genres and existential ideologies with the modern transgender experience, Mazzy aims to address the trans perspectives of dysphoria, dysmorphia, isolation, trauma, and abuse. In contrast to the colorful and celebratory approach of queer pop culture, Mazzy takes a back swing on the pendulum to the sheer horror of waking up and no longer knowing who you are. Using visceral film and stage performance, Mazzy conveys a message that is truly hypnotic, horrifying, and eye-opening.
