Come celebrate A.B.L.E.’s return to the stage!
Chicago nonprofit A.B.L.E. (Artists Breaking Limits & Expectations) celebrates a return to live performances with an all-day festival of performances and workshops at Chicago Shakespeare Theater. RECONNECT will feature the work of 58 members of the A.B.L.E. community – 33 performers with disabilities, 17 volunteer facilitators, and 8 Teaching Artists.
Over the course of a 10 week rehearsal process, each of A.B.L.E.’s 3 ensembles have collaborated to develop original monologues, scenes, movement pieces, and songs inspired by their own lives and experiences with connection. A.B.L.E.’s ensembles will present two original performances at 11AM and 7PM. In between, A.B.L.E.’s team of Creative Associates will offer workshops for members of the public to experience the games and activities A.B.L.E. uses to bring their ideas to the stage.
You can buy a ticket for one, two, or all three events within this one-day festival. How do you want to RECONNECT?
