About the Event:
Pivot Arts is pleased to announce the 6th annual PIVOT ARTS FESTIVAL, a celebration of innovative performances and multi-disciplinary works presented throughout Chicago’s Uptown and Edgewater neighborhoods from June 1 – June 10, 2018. Tickets, ranging from free to $35, go on sale Tuesday, April 3, 2018 at www.pivotarts.org/festival.
This year, the ten-day Festival features the Chicago premiere of Rude Mechs, a theater collective from Austin, TX, who have performed at major venues across the country – joined by top artistic innovators from Chicago and beyond. Performances include theater, dance, puppetry, multidisciplinary works, site-specific performances, performances for youth, workshops, discussions and showings of new works-in-progress from the Pivot Arts Incubator program, which has developed works such as Isaac Gomez’s La Ruta, to be performed at Steppenwolf Theatre next season.
The Festival also features the fourth annual “Celebrate Community!” Parade on Saturday, June 2 at 3 pm, kicking off at the Senn Playlot (corner of Elmdale and Greenview Aves.) and culminating in performances and interactive workshops at Senn Park behind Senn High School. Participating groups include CircEsteem, Storytown Improv, Walkabout Theater and more!
