ABOUT THE SHOW:
57 Blocks is an immersive and interactive performance, that brings together Free Street’s two youth ensembles, and connects audiences to both of our spaces by way of a bus ride. Audiences will arrive at Pulaski Park, and be welcomed to their first day, not as “students,” but as accomplices to youth in Chicago in their mission to change the face of education as we know it. During this 2 hour “orientation,” audience members will learn about the history of education in our city, while being invited to listen to the personal stories of the youth leading them. By the end of the play, the audience will find themselves dreaming of radical possibilities for Chicago at The Storyfront.Audience members will take a bus ride between our two locations. This is part of the performance, and the show will continue while inside the bus.
