Asheville Creative Arts Presents: BUGS!
When a band of buskers are magically transformed into insects, they must listen to and learn from one another before being returned to their human form. Will they? Comprised of a series of vignettes, this immersive musical spectacle observes and explores the tiny, teeming insect world, in a funny and uplifting experience that asks us to pause, look closely and consider the little things.

Sunday, August 12 – 2:30 PM
The first ever live performance from Palimpsest, an audio drama about memory, identity, and the things that haunt us. Hayley Heninger and Jamieson Ridenhour will perform an episode from the podcast’s popular first season, and then debut the first episode of season two, which officially launches in September. Live music will be performed by composer Ian Ridenhour
Palimpsest is an audio drama about memory, identity, and and the things that haunt us. The first season, Anneliese, tells the story of Anneliese Glaser, who is still mourning the death, years earlier, of her sister Claire. The podcast is presented as Anneliese’s audio notes to her former therapist as she works through her feelings about her sister, but soon takes an eerie turn to document hauntings in her new apartment, as well as Anneliese’s potentially flawed memories of Claire. As Anneliese experiences more hauntings, she is forced to confront disturbing truths about her own past. The season ran bi-weekly from October 31st, 2017 until March 6th, 2018.
As of mid-May, 2018, Palimpsest passed 10,000 downloads, and boasts listeners all over the United States, Canada, the U.K., and Europe.
Season two, featuring a new story and character, will launch in September 2018. Find out more at www.thepalimpsestpodcast.com.
