Choreography by Jesse Factor
Legend has it that residents of Iowa City have been encountering apparitions of Marthagany directly following the historic lightning storm on October 20, 2015. The ghost has been reported strutting down the pedestrian mall or being fierce on the Pentacrest. A recent Iowa City resident explained their experience of witnessing a vision of Marthagany on Madison Street as follows, “Mathagany is the most beautiful ghost I have ever seen. Marthagany is also very kind. She gave me a magic sequin that I put underneath my pillow and ever since I’ve slept with it there, my life has changed completely.” Another witness relayed the following, “It was like being swept up in a hurricane of fabulousness. Seeing Marthagany inspired me to find my own charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent. I will never be the same.” Be sure to catch MAKE WAY FOR MARTHAGANY.
