EVENT : Asher Hartman – Glass Bang
Saturday June 15th from 8 – 10:30pm
At a historic home in Laurel Canyon

Update: All performances SOLD OUT! We are currently scheduling more performances for late June, and will offer advance sales to Machine Project members. Stay tuned!

In Glass Bang, artist Asher Hartman’s new experimental musical play, a man becomes so alienated from himself that he is split in two beings, gradually becoming a deity whose creative and destructive impulses have a profound effect on his closest friends. In this two-hour live play, the dialogue unfolds around the viewers who become immersed in the action.
