      Holly's Ivy: A Performance by Shelby Edwards

      “Holly’s Ivy” follows Shelby's journey as she learns to deal with bereavement, love and all the wonderful shades that lay in between. By reflecting on her past through stories about her family, particularly her maternal side, Shelby remembers where she's been so that she better understands who she is and where she's going. The aim is not Resolution but Revelation. The performance will be followed by a talk back with the artist and director. We will also recognize Dr. Holly Edwards by presenting her family with the Reflector award. Shelby Marie Edwards is a poet, teaching artist, actor and arts administrator based in Chicago, IL and is delighted to bring this intimate solo work to the place she calls home.
