Collaboraction's annual celebration of community, creation, and another year promising great work, returned to Chop Shop/1st Ward OCTOBER 8, 2016. The Utopian Ball (formerly Beggars' Banquet) reinvents the theatre gala, fusing amazing food and drink, with unrivaled performances, company, and atmosphere. The evening featured hosts Hannah Phelps and Avi Roque, performances from the cast of Spanx You Very Much, our very own Peacemakers Ensemble, delicious food, incredible event design from AV Chicago and Ivan Carlson, and live and silent auctions. Check out photos from the evening and start getting excited for next year!
