A monthly performance series co-created by Quiet Lightning’s Evan Karp as The Emerald Tablet‘s first original program, back in March 2013, Under the Influence presents five artists reading or performing a favorite influence and responding with original work that in some way channels or reflects that influence. Each artist gets 15 minutes of total performance time, and chooses a person who performs in the next month’s show.

An essay version of this series appears in each issue of vitriol, beginning with the second—Jack Foley wrote the inaugural UTI essay, which you can read in full below; he has selected Ivan Argüelles, who will contribute an essay for issue iii.
