COMING THIS FALL

Corona dell'Arte

October 13th, 2020 at 7:00pm

NEIU Campus

 

A slice of surrealtainment featuring music, skills, and narrative movement. 

The show must go on, so these Traveling Masketeers don custom made masks and perform like they did in the plague days of yore. Live music videos, clowning, dance, acrobatics, vaudeville comedy bits, variety, witty dialogues, anything goes! 

On one hand, a mask provides safety, both from germs and from a partial physical identity. On the other, the symbolic image of muffling our faces so we can't speak our truths might be the most appropriate Silent Theatre image of the new 20's. Just like the masks that archetypal characters of Commedia dell’Arte wore, Silent Theatre puts on their Corona face and the show goes on.

This production will be performed LIVE outdoors and streamed LIVE on FB

Featuring: Danielle Levsky, Josh Levine, Nathaniel Fishburn, Nati Via, and Marcus Fittanto*
