Pivot Arts Festival: You’re His Child – Emmy Bean

Event Type
Event Description

You’re His Child is a heartfelt exploration of religion, family, and song. Through live music, sound, and her performative interaction with archival recordings, actor Emmy Bean engages the history of her great-grandfather—a kitchen-table hymn singer from rural Missouri—telling stories about family and music through his voice and her own.

Bean’s performance begins immediately following Vanessa Valliere’s 15 minute opener The Life and Times of Terry.

Emmy Bean is a singer, performer, and teaching artist living in Chicago. She writes songs and performs in 80 Foots, Chicago’s only End Times Vocal Trio. Emmy is also a singer and songwriter with Opera-Matic in the parks on Chicago’s northwest side, and with John Szymanski in the Monthly Music Club. Recent performance work includes A Memory Palace of Fear with Theater Oobleck, Erica Mott’s Trials and Trails at Steelworkers Park, Baudelaire in a Box with Theatre Oobleck, and The Carter Family Family Show with the Neo-Futurists. She holds an M.A. in Interdisciplinary Arts from Columbia College Chicago.
