Discover the grit and character of Milwaukee in the living dioramas of Artifacts. Nestled among the concrete and corrugated steel of the Riverwest Creative District, the Goat Palace will be transformed into a wild space of dance and theater by Artistic Director Debra Loewen and theatrical collaborator Tony Horne. From an abandoned car to the loading dock, from five distinct settings in warehouse bays to a sparking fire pit, site-based vignettes and installations unfold for a memorable experience. Sound artist C. Olivia Valenza mixes clarinet, whirring fans, ambient noise and chiming goat bells for a touch of whimsy.
Advance ticket purchase recommended. General $22, Student/Senior $18
Eccentric Manhattan socialite Florence Foster Jenkins once declared, “people may say I can’t sing, but no one ever said I didn’t sing.” And, oh, did she sing – often and loudly, but rarely on key. Her recitals brought her a legion of die-hard fans, and she capped her improbable career with a Carnegie Hall concert that famously sold out in two hours. Her story was recently told in an Oscar-nominated film starring Meryl Streep. Time Out calls Souvenir “a memorable illustration of the purely theatrical magic that can turn the tinniest ear to gold.” Souvenir is a charming and hilarious musical comedy that reminds us that can achieve anything when you set your mind to it.
