CHICAGO -- A (mis)Guided Environmental Tour with Literary Pretensions, not to be confused for a single moment with Dostoevsky's masterpiece, Crime & Punishment, is the latest concoction from the cutting-edge Neo-Futurists. Greg Allen and Connor Kalista have concocted a very interactive performance experience in which audience members, armed with flashlights and audio tours, will venture through all 13 rooms of the sprawling "Neo-Futurarium" at 5153 N. Ashland Ave. in order to uncover and create evidence of a crime.
Opening Mar. 6, the environmental work explores not only the second-floor complex, but the nature of guilt and culpability -- drawing material from creators ranging from Sophocles to Johnny Cash.
