Dear Readers, Tonight marks the culmination of a great deal of work over the past few months with the Chicago Slam Works House Ensemble. Tonight, our collaborative and ambitious poetry-forward theatre production, One Day When We Are All Robots, debuts at Chicago's Stage 773.
I'm quite excited about this debut, because the work that has gone into creating this unique theatre experience has been great, and I can't wait to share what has come out of our meditations on the complex, often confusing and sometimes hilarious effects of living in this rapidly shifting digital age. The work takes aim at everything from dating culture to our connection to or detachment from ourselves, in a meditation that's sure to leave you with plenty to think and talk about after.
The show runs this and every Friday, August 15, 22, 29 and September 5. So if you aren't able to make it this week, be sure to check it out in the weeks to come. Each week will be different, and community conversation is an important aspect of the work's evolution.
Tickets are $20 and can be found at www.Stage773.com. I hope to see you there!
