Sat Night Talk Back
Curated by Artistic Associate Holly Hughes
“The New Work of Dogs,” author Jon Katz insists that animals work as much in contemporary urban culture as they’ve ever done in any period in human history. But it’s a different kind of work; it’s the difficult work of loving us. We have become the sheep that drift towards the unmapped darkness at the edge; animals bring us back to the meadow.
The performances in this series map the shifting boundaries between the animal and human, always reminding us of the animal in the human.
No Bees for Bridgeport
A new piece by Kestutis Nakas
A fable of the City in a Garden. In the sunset of Chicago's Golden Age of Daley, one beekeeper wonders: "If the bees are gone, can the city Still work?"
Saturday & Sunday
"Chicken Soup for the Chickens"
Featuring Minneapolis based story-teller, Kevin Kling
Jungian analyst James Hillman writes about the Druer etching of Dame Melancholy with her dog at her feet, Robert Bly said we as a nation developed a nerosis when we stopped working with large animals. Martin Luther said he wished he could pray ‘like my dog looks at meat’. In the medieval beastiary to cure internal illness one was prescribed sleeping next to a dog. When I get down or depressed I just look at our wiener dogs because you’ll never see a more can do attitude in a more can’t do body than a wiener dog.
