Creative Partners, an innovative collaboration in the arts that brings together three leading Chicago companies (Blair Thomas & Company, eighth blackbird, and Lucky Plush Productions) invite audiences to THE UNEXPECTED — a launch event featuring performances and a reception on Thursday, April 25th, 2013, at 7pm at The Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, 220 E. Chicago Ave. Tickets ($40) are available at www.cptheunexpected.eventbrite.com. On-site parking will be available for $11 in the MCA garage.
Each company will present work from their award-winning repertory, including Blair Thomas & Co.’s “The Blackbird”, Lucky Plush’s “Cinderbox 2.0”, and eighth blackbird’s “These Broken Wings,” which was recently performed at the Grammys.
Creative Partners pave the way for a new funding model and to make more art. As part of Creative Partners’ joint fundraising model, each company benefits from high-level fundraising assistance and cross-disciplinary audience development. The partner companies share an aesthetic of the new, the genre-bending, and the experimental; above all, each company believes that performances should tell you something and take you somewhere.
