    August 5-7 || Allie Hankins || GHOSTING

    By My Own Hand, Part 1: GHOSTING, is the first in a five-part series of performances that leverage the performer/audience relationship to question attempts we make at containment; at naming; at establishing lines and boundaries. Toying with the perceived power of systems we use to define ourselves, such as astrology, psychotherapy, and dream interpretation, the work coyly points to the futility of attempting to uphold a fixed persona in life or performance.
