Join us for a live-cinema performance by Deke Weaver at 21c Nashville Friday 10.11, 7:00pm.
Touring the length of the Mississippi, storyteller Deke Weaver will present TIGER, the 5th performance from Unreliable Bestiary: a performance for each letter of the alphabet, each letter represented by an endangered animal or habitat. Part travelogue, séance, Parisian salon, part Spalding Gray, part Laurie Anderson, TIGER is dark thoughtful humor for the anthropocene. Performance is free and open to the public.
