Martinez E-B will perform “It Follows”, a work in progress storytelling piece that is based on his grandfather’s decision to change his family name and explores how that past decision impacted the events of his life. The performance includes work created during his residency. The audience is invited to comment, discuss, and to share their personal experiences if they find a link between themselves and the story. Martinez E-B strongly believes it is that human sharing that makes the art.REGISTER
This event is being held in-person at Bethany Arts Community. For your safety, and the safety of our artists and staff, attendance is being limited and you will be required to wear a mask while at Bethany irrespective of vaccination status. Please read our Covid-19 Safety Statement before your visit.
