AFTER SEVENTEEN YEARS, CHICAGO’S PIONEER PHYSICAL THEATER COMPANY
ANNOUNCES OUR FINAL PERFORMANCE PIECE, GRAPHOMANIAx, A WORLD PREMIERE ORIGINAL WORK, MARCH 17th THROUGH APRIL 1st AT THE CHOPIN THEATER DOWNSTAIRS FOR TEN PERFORMANCES ONLY!
Press Contact: Dexter Bullard firstname.lastname@example.org 773.960.9098
GRAPHOMANIAx is a theatrical examination of meaning, privacy and consequence in a paranoid world flooded with data. Plasticene’s performers gather, record, decode, struggle, and crunch information to save the state and themselves from unknown but imminent threat. Masters of scenic innovation, the company uses three rolling chalkboards, complex video projections, experimental live sound, and textured lighting, to build mysterious, visceral, and striking theater. The piece was workshopped as part of City of Chicago’s “In the Works” program at Millennium Park in 2011 with participation of performers Sharon Göpfert and director Paola Colletto.
GRAPHOMANIAx marks Plasticene’s final creation. The company and its mission will remain in existence, but will no longer create new performance work as a collective.
