We often trust vocal-driven performance artists to articulate common worldly details we think we’re the only ones who notice. It helps audience members cope.

Helping SE Michigan theatre goers explore empathy through grief, creative collective Spread Art debuts its latest artist-in-residence, Chelsea Unzner, with her grief-centered performance piece “Echoes of Them” this Friday, April 13.

As the show’s sole actor, Boston-based performer Unzner explores human grief through different characters based on afflicted people Unzner interviewed when researching the piece.

Jaunt to Spread Art’s downtown Detroit creative space (5141 Rosa Parks Blvd) for the performance piece’s Motor City premiere at 7:00 p.m., the first of 12 total performances.

There’s also a complimentary artist brunch following next weekend’s 2:00 p.m. performance on Sunday, April 22, for audience members curious about Unzner’s artistic perspective on grief.

Expect to experience an empathetic intellectual endeavor spliced with some artistic impetus.

Tickets on sale now.
