Arts & Culture

What do comics and geology have in common? In the culminating performance of Town Hall’s second three-month In Residency program, Artist in Residence Ellen Forney and Scholar in Residence David Montgomery present how storytelling shapes their work to illuminate and entertain. In a process of discovery, experimentation, and creation, each Resident already has attended Town Hall events, communicated with audiences, and hosted Scratch Night performances. (Forney hosted an interactive workshop exploring the analogous skills and concepts between the apparently disparate artistic mediums of cartooning and theatre while Montgomery looked at the geologic evidence of the Great Flood and shared some stories from his own personal rock collection.) Now, their Residencies wrap up with a reflective look at all they have learned and experienced here at Town Hall. Brain function, the “space between,” and how storytelling shapes their work will all be explored in this dynamic end to the series.

Presented by: Town Hall, as part of the In Residence program. Series media sponsorship provided by The Stranger’s A&P.
Tickets: $5.
Doors open: 6:30 p.m.
