MAY 22 - JUNE 15, 2014

The annual SKETCHBOOK Festival is Collaboraction at its best: breaking down the walls that divide theater, music, visual art, video, and the internet. Selected from hundreds of submissions, SKETCHBOOK once again brings together the collective talents of more than 150 pioneering directors, designers, actors, musicians and artists from Chicago and around the country for a jaw-dropping evening of creativity, experimentation, and celebration.


This year's festival, guest curated by Ike Holter and directed by Anthony Moseley, will transport audiences to 2049, a post-apocalyptic world of regeneration and birth, where 17 shows from the past are being staged to remember the way we were before the Revolution.
