Ashley Hunt will ask audience members the difficult questions of ethnicity, visibility, and speech in his performance of Notes on the Emptying of a City at 7:30 p.m. today at Public Space One, 129 E. Washington St. Admission is free.

In this performance, Hunt will put together sounds, images, and stories of a documentary before an audience. At first, it might seem as though it is going to be a traditional lecture with basic slides, but then it turns into more of a storytelling.

Hunt will describe his experiences working with a group of social-justice activists in the events following Hurricane Katrina. He will also talk to audience members about how this crisis is still affecting the U.S. as country.

Hunt will get audiences members thinking with his performance, and he will provide an insight to the problems and troubles Katrina caused to the U.S. Hunt’s other works include A World Map: In Which We See, Script’s From a Nation at War, and his continuous piece Corrections Documentary Project.
