An elevator operator named Jorge doesn’t know he’s dead. A passive aggressive ghost defends his territory at the corner of Division and Western. A mysterious pattern of red lined maps chokes the city into decades-long segregation. In 100 Hauntings, created by an intergenerational ensemble of performers, comedians, writers and community organizers, Free Street asks who—and what— is haunting Chicago.
Fresh off of a “campfire style” tour in public parks this summer, 100 Hauntings moves inside for a longer, multimedia performance starting October 14th – just in time for Halloween. 100 Hauntings is directed and developed by Coya Paz and Bobby Biedrzycki, with sound design by Damon Locks, lighting design by Jacob Snodgrass, set design by Angela McIlvain, and dramaturgy by Johanna Orr. The intergenerational ensemble includes Christine Bowen, Annette Britton, Dan Cobbler, Emmanuel Dunagan, Daisy Franco, Noe Jara, Ysaÿe McKeever, Deanalis Resto, Alex Rodriguez, Elijah Ruiz, Izzy Strazzabosco, and Aimy Tien.
