Axis: The importance of human sacrifice in the 21st Century (Gare Centrale and Une Compagnie, Belgium) Chicago International Puppet Theatre Festival

Jan 25th - 27. It's official. The world is going to hell in a hand basket, while a pair of decadent plutocrats is trying to hang on to their privileges. The axis that has kept them upright, proud and arrogant for ages begins to look more and more like a roundabout. Faced with the enigmatic, the incomprehensible, they lose the capacity for language transforming into a horrible jargon of disoriented humans, into long obsessive complaints, while around them the voices of their unconsciousness resound. Once hard, now flaccid.

Tickets - $41/31 (students). More info/box office: 312-753-3234
