The Evening

Presented by The Warhol and the New Hazlett Theater
October 23 | 8PM

The Warhol and the New Hazlett Theater present Richard Maxwell’s The Evening. Asi, Cosmo, and Beatrice each embody a different attitude toward life: you fight, you accept, or you run away. Each of these people — played with a hypnotic emotional transparency — seriously considers all of these options as they travel through a landscape inspired by Dante’s Divine Comedy.

Free Tickets for Northsiders: My Good Side and RETREAD/together/apart

My Good Side/RETREAD

Part of the CSA Performance Series
May 11 | 8PM

Two Shows, One Night…

The Community Supported Art performance series concludes its current season on Thursday, June 11 with our first ever double feature: Teena Marie Custer’s My Good Side and fellow Northsider Roberta Guido’s RETREAD/together/apart.

My Good Side examines how we create personas on social networks, “curating” our lives for general consumption. Using the street dance styles of wacking, breaking, house, and locking, Teena explores how lines of privacy, fantasy, and reality are blurred.

RETREAD/together/apart focuses on ways sense memory, particularly touch, affects human emotion. There’s a very visceral sense that the skin isn’t a barrier to these experiences but is permeable and affected, as individuals and as a collective.
