The Hinterlands: The Radicalization Process

@ Co-Prosperity Sphere

3219 S Morgan St, Chicago, IL 60608

Opening Friday, August 24th, at 7:30 PM

On view through Monday, August 27th

Layering historical accounts of the radical left in the 1960s and ‘70s with a master class in American method acting, socialist pageantry, and a gleefully obtuse reproduction of The Living Theatre’s “Antigone,” this production from Detroit-based company The Hinterlands stokes the embers of America’s past revolutions to ignite our radical potential. Audiences begin the performance sifting through the archive of a forgotten revolutionary, navigating histories true and false, real and imagined, before they make their way into the performance space, a safe-house within a 1970s bungalow. Imagery unfolds both mundane and shocking; a live-score is performed on analog synthesizers and everyday objects; “L’Internationale” is sung; an explosion occurs.

This show runs for four nights, Friday the 24th – Monday the 27th at 7:30 pm each night.
