The Neo-Futurists & Chicago Puppet Fest present:

The Neo-Futurists: I, OBJECT! 30 Neo-Futurist Puppet Plays

January 21-23 and January 28-30, 2022

From Chicago’s celebrated Neo-Futurists comes this all original, all new series of short works by local theater makers giving audiences a dunk into object performance and high-speed theater. The folks that made the short form famous bring you the same energy, intellect, craft and humor, this time of course, with puppetry at the core. Be amazed as The Neo-Futurists perform 30 short puppet works, in random order, chosen by the audience. It’s chaotic, irreverent, honest and messy. In addition to The Neo-Futurist ensemble, a guest artist will be featured each night.
