Chicago Puppet Fests presents:
Khecari: as though your body were right
An audience of seven in a room within a room. A micro-theater. A puppet theater. The performer’s body as landscape. Watching the cells of the body murmurate like starlings. A creature that would live on such a landscape. Crawling over it, flying over it. Calling it home. as though your body were right is an invitation to confront the bodiliness of being human – a shared experience of the vulnerability of being a body, and of the power of being a body.
With special support from: ArtsTour, Illinois Arts Council Agency.
