PWNW Public Access

April 23-25, Thurs-Sat at 8pm
Ticket info coming soon

By My Own Hand / Part One: GHOSTING, created and performed by Allie Hankins, is the first of a five-part performance series created and performed by Allie , a zine of poems and illustrations, and an album of “field recordings.” Toying with the perceived power of the systems we use to define ourselves, such as astrology, psychotherapy, and dream interpretation, the piece establishes itself as a multi-tentacled examination and a coy exemplification of the futility in attempting to uphold a fixed persona in life, and the dark necessity of “killing” our past selves in our pursuit of reinvention or “betterment”.
