Martha Wittman at Round House Theatre

Dancer, choreographer, and Kefa Cafe regular (and a Dr. Kaung's Salon guest last year) Martha Wittman directs a performance that explores historic material from the coal mining industry and moments of community life found in the artworks of her father, Michael J. Gallagher, a WPA artist. This Saturday and Sunday! Note: this event is not at the cafe, but up the street and around the corner at Round House Theater.
