Thursday, January 24, 7:00 PM Links Hall, Studio B 3111 N Western Ave Tabletop Tragedies is a triptych of works by longtime collaborators and UChicago lecturers in the TAPS Department, Frank Maugeri and Seth Bockley (The Last Matador; The Death and Life of Billy The Kid; and A Simple Soul). These irreverent, imaginative, and affecting works, scored by Liz Chidester, tell true stories of fate and redemption using an astonishing range of techniques including hand-carved wooden puppets, beastly masks, haunting music, and an epic Wild West chase scene performed on paper scrolls. Join us for opening night of this exciting performance, followed by an exclusive post-show conversation with the artists.
Tickets: $10 student tickets and free transportation with UCID. (limit 1 ticket per UCID)
