About the Artists

 In 2009, Hixson and Goulish closed Goat Island, a Chicago-based collaborative performance group, to create this new group to broaden the canvas to include different collaborators for new projects while maintaining a narrow thematic focus and rigorous presentation. This performance is co-commissioned by the MCA through the National Performance Network Creation Fund, and is the first Chicago performance from Every house has a door.



Funding

Let us think… is a National Performance Network (NPN) Creation Fund Project co-commissioned by P.S. 122 with the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, Fusebox Festival, and NPN. Support is also provided from the NPN Forth Fund.
