Step right this way for a festive night celebrating the Chautauqua Circuit (1874 –1935), a wildly popular national network of traveling lecturers, performing artists, and entertainers.
The National Theater of the USA (NTUSA) transforms the McGuire Theater at the Walker Arts Center into the Chautauqua “big-top” experience as it mixes music, dance, debates, scientific experiments, circus arts, vaudeville, and feats of strength that were the hallmark of the circuit. All the while, this highly inventive New York City collective, joined by local luminaries, investigates and reinvents a distinctly American form of art and entertainment while posing questions about community, capitalism, and “high” and “low” culture.
A KFAI-sponsored live broadcast, hosted by Jerry Stearns & Allison Herrera, from 8 pm - 9:30 pm
