Explore Iceland’s wild and rich glacial landscape through the eyes of a few brave and curious sheep in this U.S. premiere by Italy’s Teatro di Piazza D’Occasione. Returning to the festival for the third time, TPO’s immersive performances, best described as paintings in movement, transport audiences with interactive walls and floors that, when touched, respond with music, colors, and images. Recommended for ages 4 and up.
Presented by Chicago Humanities Festival in partnership with MCA, Chicago
