UNDER THE INFLUENCE: round two going down real smooth

Under the Influence • Round 2The Emerald Tablet is proud to host the second round of its first homegrown performance series, co-created with and hosted by Quiet Lightning‘s Evan Karp.

Four artists perform work by some of their major influences, followed by original work created for the show that channels that influence. Artists have 15 minutes to perform and will help select the following month’s performers, so that each show is inspired by the one before. In addition, each month an influence will be announced, and we will accept submissions of original work in response; one will be selected to be performed in the next show.

The second show will be Friday, April 26th, featuring: Lizzy Acker channeling The Mountain Goats, MK Chavez divining Sandra Cisneros, and Mariama Lockington invoking L.M. Montgomery (click here to find more info on the performers and their influences), as well as one person responding to the work of Carla Kihlstedt (submissions are open through the end of Wednesday, April 17th, and you can click here to submit).

Come see what turns people on and what they do about it. Who knows? You might take someone more than just home with you. Under the Influence: because some things last longer than homes.
