Sunday, July 31 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pmFree
Members & guests – $30 plus fees*. The day before the event, a confirmation email with additional details will be sent to all registered attendees.
“Tiny Theatre” makes a triumphant return to live theatre-going with a new and exciting performance! This short double-bill of operas explore nothing less than the meaning of life–consciousness, memory, regret, love, and….talking bread?
In The Kamikaze Mind, a man who has fallen into a black hole experiences his last moments as a conversation between three parts of himself. Co-created with choreographer and dancer Natalie Elizabeth, lyrical music by Australian composer Nicole Murphy tells a poignant story of love, regret, and longing for wholeness. Following an intermission is the raucous, absurd, and touching comedy of Would You Eat Me? by Joshua Brown. The story follows the protagonist as she tries to make dinner rolls by following one of her celebrity-chef mother’s YouTube videos, with bizarre and hilarious results.
Support the Chicago theatre scene while also supporting the Village: Thompson Street Opera Company also happens to be run by our Director of Programs & Communications, Claire DiVizio!
Both operas will be performed in English, with projected supertitles.
