Michael Kearns brought “intimacies,” his one-man six-character show, to the ArtsCenter Friday and will perform again tomorrow–Saturday–at 8 p.m. His show includes six characters–look at the photos below to find out more about them.

Between 6 and 8 tomorrow night before the show, there will be free AIDS tests at the ArtsCenter, serving anyone who comes–whether you’re seeing the show or not. The ArtsCenter is partnering with UNC’s Center for Aids Research and SHAC, UNC’s Free Medical Clinic, in addition to working in conjunction with UNC’s Department of Communication Studies’ Solo Takes On: A Festival of One-Performance Performances.

Kearns, who revealed his HIV-positive status in 1991, wrote “intimacies” 20 years ago to commemorate World AIDS Day. Tickets for tomorrow night’s show are $15, with special prices of $13 for members and $10 for students.

I got in to do a private photo shoot before Kearns’s tonight–here are the faces of some of Kearns’s characters. More photos after the page break!
