Join us for the world premiere of Exquisite Corpse by Cassidy Slaughter-Mason and Abby Pierce and Velvet by Allie Dunn, Leo Gilbert, Dru Greenwood, Tyla Landry, Sydney Levison, Clifton Lyons, and Becky Schultz. As always, attendance is free with RSVP.
The Exquisite Corpse:
Welcome to the “The Exquisite Corpse,” a DIY artists collective in Chicago comprised of five wildly different personalities; from their disciplines to their appetites, their personal histories to their dishwashing habits. It’s a colorful and eccentric shared space, where the drive for generating radical and loving work is only mitigated by the fact that humans live there, with all the realities that come with that like: hygiene, personal space, and oh yeah, rent.
When Demetra, a competitive professional, is forced to reevaluate her social life, she strikes up a friendship with Cymone, her seemingly much cooler coworker. As their worlds collide to form a brand new #squad, these five young Chicagoans begin to reevaluate their own identities as well as their relationships to each other. By weaving together public and private experiences, VELVET comedically explores the joys, vulnerabilities, and everything in-betweens of making new friends in your mid-twenties.
All onstage discussion along with the episodes themselves will be translated live in American Sign Language.
