An Illuminating conversation: Part 4

Created by FUSEBOX artist Tobi Daniel w/ Benjamin Domask

Come join the non-verbal conversation between the head and the heart as they shine light on the murky darkness of communication. Questions surrounding the emotional depth of feeling innate to the human race explode out of a non-sequitur sequence of events involving light bulbs, electrical cords, shadows, and hand-holding.


Invitation to a beheading

Direct from Chicago!
Created by Sweven Theatre and Rough House

In a bizarre and irrational world, a man is condemned to death for an absurd crime, and sent to a surreal prison to await his execution. But the prison may not be what it seems...

Alternately disorienting, absurd, hysterical, and hopeful, this great novel by one of the 20th century’s masters is brought to the stage in a co-production by Rough House and Sweven Theatre. With their signature combination of playfulness and strangeness, full of surprising twists and turns, and told through a combination of puppetry, masks, and imaginative storytelling.

With MUSICal Guests


June 14: Eric Carranza and Kate Dikareva

Versatile composer-musician-songwriter Eric Carranza pairs his guitar with Kate Dikareva’s violin; together they conjure extraordinary moods that evoke folk, world-beat, and classical genres.
