ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents: Sontag: Reborn Iconic intellectual Susan Sontag is brought vividly to life in Sontag: Reborn, adapted from her early journals by performer Moe Angelos. Directed by Marianne Weems, this intimate and startling portrait traces Sontag's private life from the age of 14 to her emergence as a world-renowned author and activist. The young Sontag wrestles with her emerging sexuality and precocious intelligence, fraught with doubt and insecurity yet driven by her willfulness, ambition and voracious curiosity. The refuge of her diary became integral to her development as a writer. Sontag says herself, "In the journal I do not just express myself more openly than I could in person. I create myself." The Builders Association brings it's signature synthesis of video and sound back to the ArtsEmerson stage following House / Divided to poetically tell the personal story of one of America's most controversial and memorable cultural critics.
