    Portraiture is an evening of storytelling and a literary performance piece.

    The stories being told involve characters reaching epiphanies about life, sex, love, language, death, and possibly themselves. The outcome forms a cohesive whole about how humans survive (even when they don't necessarily want to) through an odd array of coping mechanisms, which include denial, brutal honesty, silence, a complete lack of silence, firm resolution to change every aspect of their lives, starting with themselves, or any combination thereof.

    This is not meant to be an all-inclusive list.

    Carissa Halston is a writer/performer living in Boston. She has been twice nominated for the Pushcart Prize and was honorably mentioned in the 2008 New York Book Festival. Her debut novel was called 'emotionally generous' and 'a lovely piece of female confessional' by Kirkus Reviews. Carissa is currently at work on her second novel.
