We'll Meet You There

We’ll Meet You There is a one night performance event consisted of eight simultaneous community processions through Wicker Park/Bucktown publicly celebrating and bearing witness to everyday aspects of our lives. The Promenade of Rising Dough, The Promenade of Double Knots, The Promenade of One Bumble Bee, The Promenade of Plywood, The Promenade of Noras, The Promenade of Vacuums, The Promenade of Cantaloupe, and the Promenade of Collies each had their own mood and attitude, meeting place and route through the neighborhood, and they converged around 6 o’clock at a city park in the neighborhood). At the park we will assemble for a neighborhood rally not for sport teams or returning heroes, but for for ourselves and the absurdity and beauty of the world in which we live.
