Join us on a chilly winter evening for a screen reading performance wherein several artists will make the audio track for a most unusual VHS selection. Performers Amos Leager, Flannery Cashill, Zophia McDougal, Emily Eyrie, Jori Sackin, Ana Maldonado, and Megan Pobywajlo will read to a silent screening of early 90’s television recordings found on tape in one woman’s basement in Kansas City, Missouri.
