Actor/ director/ producer Jonathan Pitts, curator for NAKED i, says that it "draws upon performers, directors, and generative artists of all persuasions to challenge themselves and their audience," adding that NAKED i "serves as a greenhouse to shepard collaborated and cross collaborated original works between many of Chicago's top artists from all the multi disciplines."

Dancers, mask makers, performance artists, and musicians sporting their pieces in NAKED i hail from Chicago performing arts groups such as X-Sight!, Lookingglass Theatre, Curious Theatre Branch, Oobleck, New Criminals, Blue Rider, MPAACT, Next Theatre and Roadworks Ensemble.

Tickets for the entire series are $40, individual ticket prices are $10, consisting of three to six performances per show.
