The Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) presents the fourth annual OnEdge, the experimental live performance series, February 23–March 25, 2016. The FREE admission series will feature Chicago and world premieres from national and international artists and companies.
One-on-one performances take place every 20 minutes. Performance is free but advance registration is required at www.triumphoffame.eventbrite.com.
Swiss-based performer Marie-Caroline Hominal strips down the codes of theatrical artifice in a phantasmagorical and intimate one-on-one encounter with an audience member scheduled every 20 minutes. The Triumph of Fame is one of six poems by Petrarch title I Trionfi, which describe life through dueling virtues using the idea of triumph allegorically. In the poems, Fame triumphs over Death but is then defeated by Time and Eternity.
OnEdge is FREE and seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis 60 minutes before each performance.
