Tour Guides is a project of The Poetry Performance Incubator at the Guild Literary Complex here in Chicago. The PPI is designed to bring together diverse poets from across the city to create original collaborative performance. Tour Guides offers a tour of the Chicago tourists never see, and is a testament to the city as it is and as it has been, an attempt to document a rapidly changing city. Given its themes, Tour Guides is an adaptive project - the Guild has produced it four times, each time in a different neighborhood, with different casts. Some content stays the same, other content swapped out for new material. Every run is different!
