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.
