CSA Artist: Anya Martin

Part of the CSA Performance Series

Thursday, April 28pm

Anya Martin, along with Hiawatha Project and a team of performing artists, disassembles the legendary hero of the American railroad, John Henry.  JH: Mechanics of a Legend looks deep into our cultural past for the human behind the folklore.

A young, black veteran of the Union Army, caught in the confusion and fury of a nation still battling itself…

The legend of John Henry, the only African American tall tale is based on the story of a real man. The truth imbedded in the dawn of a new nation and the American machine age.

His legacy left to us in early American songs and echoed today by Harry Belafonte, Johnny Cash, and Bruce Springsteen, the mighty railroad man, John Henry, races a steam drill to his death and leaves his fabled hammer to Polly Ann, his mysterious lover. JH: Mechanics of a Legend melds the language of mechanics, century-old ballads and primary historical records to explore the legend of John Henry. Local artists join forces with Anya Martin of Hiawatha Project to measure the myth, the man, and the machine, revealing a poetic and dangerous truth inside the machinations of history, rooted in the economics of slavery.

About the Local Artist

Anya is the artistic director and lead conceptual artist, playwright, and director of Hiawatha Project. Hiawatha strives to create original ensemble-based performances inspired by specific social issues.  Learn more at hiawathaproject.org.
