• The Brink!

    Walkabout Theater and Links Hall present
    The Chicago Premiere of
    The Brink! Or Nobody’s Ever Kissed Me Like That

    March 16-31 2018
    @ Links Hall , 3111 N Western Ave.

    April 6-8 2018
    Presented by the 8th International Theatre Olympics
    in Mumbai and New Delhi

    In a cafe at the edge of the world, a group of wayward performers present The Brink!, an experimental cabaret in a time of unraveling. Musical, muscular, irreverent, and full of wonder, The Brink!… responds to that moment when the ground beneath us shifts too quickly, and the world suddenly seems unrecognizable. Drawing from American pop songs and jazz standards, the poetry of Gertrude Stein, and Ann Carson’s “The Gender of Sound,” the ensemble slides past the edge of reason in this unfettered encounter with the stranger inside.
