Heist at DCASE

  • Chicago Cultural Center, Studio Theater 78 East Washington Street Chicago, IL, 60602 United States (map)

The Dilettantes craft distinctive, immersive experiences that contain both performance and participation. Their projects can be narrative‐based, structurally experimental, or anywhere in between -- exploring what’s joyful, unexpected and necessary about being in a room with other human beings.

Heist is an interactive experience that invites audience members to pull off a classic, cinema-style robbery. Employing game structures and techniques to place the audience at the center of the action, The Dilettantes will immerse you in all the hallmarks of a heist in a participatory, theatrical environment.

Part of their In the Works grant through the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events. A public showing of the project will take place on Friday July 29th at 7pm, at the Chicago Cultural Center’s Studio Theater.
