The Squeeze by Clifton Holznagel (REVIEW). Filmed at 79th Avenue Festival. NIGHTLIFE is pleased to bring you CoHo favorite, Clifton Holznagel, presenting #doppelgäng live, a conversation on radicalization, isolation, and decolonization.

Tickets are FREE and everyone is invited! Follow our Twitch channel and receive a notification when we go live at 9 PM.

CLIFTON HOLZNAGEL has been growing on stage since he was a little bean sprout in Cleveland, Ohio in the late 90s. Theatre has always been his home and community; it has taught him the concepts of self-reflection and empathy as lifelong pursuits. The last few years have brought a deepened desire to play his part in the progress of humanity. He hopes that by following his joy and listening to the world around him he can inspire others to do the same.

Clifton is currently the co-host of the Radical Listening podcast and has spent the last seven years on Portland stages at CoHo, defunkt, Vertigo, Shaking the Tree, and other theatres. He trained with Portland Experimental Theatre Ensemble (PETE) at their Institute for Contemporary Performance and he holds a BFA in Acting from Ohio University.
