UNDER THE INFLUENCE: spontaneous prose meets the avant-garde, hip hop and queer british fanaticism

Join us on Friday, July 26th at 7:30pm for the fifth installment of our first homegrown performance series, Under the Influence, co-created with and hosted by Quiet Lightning‘s Evan Karp.

Four artists perform work by one of their major influences, followed by original work created for the show that channels that influence. Artists have 15 minutes and select the following month’s performers, so each show is inspired by the one before.

This month’s show features Matthew Sherling channeling Jack Kerouac, Brittany Billmeyer-Finn divining Maya Deren, Gabriel Cortez invoking Yasiin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def), and Jenny Bitner responding to the work of Jeanette Winterson (click here to find more info on the performers and their influences). Don’t miss this!
