Lookingglass Theatre Company, in Association with The Actors Gymnasium brings you PORTAL, as part of the Chicago Park District’s Night Out in the Parks. This boisterous and interactive production encourages us to close the computer and open the window. Life has become a series of TikTok takes and talking heads, and it’s time to reconnect with that finest playground, nature. These installation performances are free, public events, accessible to all. There is no dialogue and the visual storytelling of dance, circus, and puppetry can be easily interpreted by all ages and all language backgrounds. PORTAL is part of our “Lookingglass Outdoors” season, while construction at home in the historic Water Tower Water Works continues.
