100 Hauntings

  • free street theater 1419 West Blackhawk Street Chicago, IL, 60642 United States (map)

100 Hauntings is BACK, for a BIGGER! BADDER! DEADER! show this Fall. 

An elevator operator named Jorge doesn’t know he’s dead. A passive aggressive ghost defends his territory at the corner of Division and Western. A mysterious pattern of redlined maps chokes the city into decades-long segregation. In 100 Hauntings, created by an intergenerational ensemble of performers, comedians, writers and community organizers, Free Street asks: Who—and what— is haunting Chicago? To create the performance, the ensemble facilitated over a dozen story circles in communities ranging from Englewood to Humboldt Park, asking hundreds of Chicagoans to share their personal experiences with the notion of hauntings, both literal and metaphorical.
