Devised by Theater Unspeakable
Directed by Marc Frost

Final 3 performances!
Seven actors—suspended on a platform two feet off the ground—share 21 square feet of space to recreate the entire American fight for independence from Lexington to Yorktown. Using only the actors’ bodies, voices and (pantomimed) cannons, the show evokes an epic time period in American history. Combining tongue-in-cheek humor with a dash of derring-do, The American Revolution displays Theater Unspeakable’s rowdy brand of bare-boned and imaginative physical theater in its first ever extended run in Chicago.

Laurent Bigot sets various objects in motion. Literally. Wind up toys, salvaged material and cheap gadgets collide in “a little circus” that explores how sound influences our understanding of action and challenges us to change our perspective.
