Performance artist Megan Hildebrandt will present her "alternative history lesson" Port Townsend style while in residency at Centrum. Megan's work brings communities in touch with some aspect of their own history by reenacting a part of that community's forgotten life and times. While we don't know the subject of her Port Townsend piece, we can show you what she did in a Baltimore neighborhood by simply scrubbing marble steps. She was later interviewed about the experience on Baltimore Public Radio. Megan will be in residence in March, and we'll keep you posted on the details of her Port Townsend performance.
Although Centrum Residents are not required to interact with the community while here, it's always great when one of our artists or writers finds a way to engage the public in their New Work. Readings, open studios, recitals, and performance pieces like Megan's add to the vibrancy and fun of the Residency Program here at Centrum.
