Chicago Performance Art Series

June 6 – 9, 1991
Performance Art, Cabarets, Series


About the Program

This series was a special performance exchange between Chicago and Vancouver-based artists, curated by UK performance artist Hester Reeve. Designed to promote new networks and new ideas at the intersection of two different but similar performance communities, the series included solo performances by Dani K., Charles Navin, Mary Brogger, Hester Reeve, Iris Moore, and a new musical by Robert Metrik performed by both the Vancouver and Chicago collaborators. The series concluded with the requisite cabaret of short works by all artists in the series, as well as guest performances by local artists Judy Radul, Andrew Wilson, Scott Tate, and an durational installation by Rick Gibson.
