What do we leave behind? / For whom is it intended, / is it something to be considered / or best forgotten? / Is it: concrete or ethereal, / a statue or an idea, / an egotistical monument or a path to nirvana? / Such are the musings of old men.

Welcome to the Public Energy Performing Arts Rewind Room!

The Public Energy Rewind Room is a weekly livestream where we showcase full and excerpted performances from Public Energy’s archives. It’s a chance to gather together and enjoy art. The Rewind Room will focus entirely on local artists.

Each performance is livestreamed to YouTube, Facebook and Instagram, and featured on a performance page on the Public Energy website. Following the performance you are invited to meet in a Zoom video chat social to discuss the performance. Think of it as a virtual post-show reception. BYO Snacks.
