The Apotheosis of Matt, (2018)

Performed by Connor Walden

Performed in Seattle, WA on September 28th

Matt is the Christian you wish you could be. He goes to church every Sunday, he is humble, he reads the bible everyday, he asks for forgiveness and extends forgiveness, he prays for you, he is honest, and he is a serious man. He fits the mold no matter the cultural context, whether it’s an African nation state, an Indian village, or a Hipster-Techie Seattle. His calling in life is to provide people around the world with access to clean Water. He invites you to contribute to the cause by placing money in the donation box and taking a souvenir.
