The LIVINGroom Presents:

The LIVINGroom is a performance series that brings together solo artists and directors who devise, stage, and perform autobiographical stories based on a theme. Staged in the Cabaret Theater at Stage 773, performances blend spoken word, movement, spectacle, music, and any other device that bridges the personal and the universal.

At its core, the LIVINGroom is a collaboration among all of the artists involved. An ensemble of writer/performers and a director develop their ideas, drawn from or centered on a theme or challenge, through the writing and rehearsal process, creating a theatrical staging of autobiographical stories.

We have a new four-show season in an exciting new space and with some of the most experienced directors, talented performers, and skilled writers and designers that Chicago has to offer.


In November, The LIVINGroom stages an evening of Dada

What is Dada? Art history will tell you that Dada is an early twentieth century avant-garde movement that lashed out against conformity, corruption and convention through subversive art, literature, and performance.

But we’re saying that once you try to define Dada, you’ve lost the game.
It defies definition. 
It will kick you in the behind. 
It is an inarticulate howl. 

Find out what happens when Dada and solo collide.

The LIVINGroom: DADA SOLO is THREE nights of new solo performance at Stage 773: Sundays, November 5, 12, and 19, at 7:00 pm!
