8:00 Madison Mae Parker (Dance Studio)
Madison Mae Parker will be performing an excerpt from her one woman show Unravel. Unravel is the discovery, the making, the deconstruction, the reconstruction of our relationship with bodies. Come experience a poetry and movement based performance on fabric, bodies, souls, and the thread that stitches us all together. Unravel originally premiered in November 2017 at The Arts Asylum.

8:30 pm Jason Zeh (Blackbox)
Jason Zeh will be presenting a sound-based, performance work-in-progress. The piece employs layers of sin waves and cassette drones, hacked cassette-transcription machines, and computer-generated text. The piece rests somewhere between poetry, music, and performance art.

9:00 Karan Karla Aron (Dance Studio)
A smoky cocktail of intimate musical theatre pieces and moods by composer and pianist Karla Aron. Featuring Danielle Jean Hennerberg, trombone; Daniel Hogans, drums; and Tim Metz, guitar.

9:30pm Mazzy Mann (Blackbox)
Mazzy performs “Fine Dining,” is an immersive experience of free-form jazz piano and keys implementing soul, blues, and operatic vocal stylings. Thomas Wilson will be on keys, Mazzy Mann will be the vocalist. The inspiration of this piece derives from the experiences one might have infinite connections through a restaurant setting: a first date, an awkward family dinner, the last time two loved ones will ever see each other. The atmosphere will be like a last call at a late night near empty diner.
