The Spark with Tift Merritt

In this new livestreamed series, Grammy–nominated singer/songwriter and UNC alumna Tift Merritt returns to Carolina Performing Arts to take us behind the scenes in artist-to-artist video interviews that delve deep into the creative process. The Spark peels back the polished performance to reveal the elbow grease, risk, fire, and courage behind the art—and artists—we think we know.

Each month, Tift will welcome a new artist for a 45-minute livestreamed conversation that gets to the heart of their work, followed by a 15-minute audience Q&A.

Free and open to the public; registration required.

The Spark with Tift Merritt: Hope Boykin

Description

Join us for the sixth episode of The Spark with Tift Merritt, featuring longtime Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater dancer Hope Boykin. In this series, Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter and UNC alumna Tift Merritt returns to Carolina Performing Arts to take us behind the scenes in artist-to-artist video interviews that delve deep into the creative process.

On March 18, Tift will sit down with Hope Boykin—dancer, educator, creator, motivator, and native daughter of Durham, NC. Hope is no stranger to Carolina Performing Arts; she retired in 2020 from a 20-year career with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater (AAADT), which has brought her home to NC to perform on the CPA season numerous times. Runtime: approximately 60 minutes.

Registration for this event closes at 12 PM EST on 3/18/2021. The recording will be available on-demand for all ticketholders for 72 hours from the time of the performance.
