UNDER THE INFLUENCE: from w.b. yeats to gil scott heron, charles bukowski to grace paley

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

Under the Influence • art by Winston SmithFour 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 third show will be Friday, May 24th, featuring: Terry Taplin channeling W.B. Yeats, Jason Schenheit divining Gil Scott Heron, and Alexandra Kostoulas invoking Charles Bukowski (click here to find more info on the performers and their influences), as well as one person responding to the work of Grace Paley (submissions are open through the end of Wednesday, May 15th, 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.
