Insomnia's My Closest Friend is a poetic and musical retrospective on Black/Biracial mental health and presented masculinity. Performance Poet Tavius Marshall and composer Joshua Dent have created a show that discusses their own personal perspective on the lack of representation and conversation around the issue. Performed by chamber ensemble and a theatrical thesis of words and thought, we discuss the struggle of being "othered" in a world already not built for you.

chatterbird will host a post-event talkback session featuring Dr. Raquel Martin, focused on mental health-related resources & challenges for Black communities.

This event will be hosted at Analog at Hutton Hotel in Midtown. Doors will open at 8, and music will start at 8:30 (lasting around 45 minutes), followed by a 30-minute talkback.

We are grateful for the support of Metro Arts Nashville, Tennessee Arts Commission, and New Music USA in helping to make this performance possible.
