An Exquisite Crawl

  • Logan Square Chicago, IL (map)

Homeroom and MAKE Literary Productions present a three-venue crawl featuring three unique, exquisite-corpse stories created through collaborations between some of Chicago’s finest writers and musicians. 

Through this arts-packed, spring crawl along Milwaukee Ave, attendees will witness the unveiling of three separate exquisite corpse stories—each created by a group of four writers and musicians. Using the well-known exquisite corpse drawing practice as a model, the participants will pass off a written line or a line of music to the next participant. That individual will then continue the story, knowing only the single proceeding final line. These ~10-minute tales will each contain music, spoken word, a combination of the two, and an element of surprise for the participants and audience alike.

Participants include Kyle Beachy, Jim Becker, Deidre Huckabay, Mabel Kwan, A.Martinez, Tarnynon Onumonu, Jeffrey Sherfey, Mai Sugimoto, Andrew Tham, Michael Zerang, and more! 

Locations include Sector 2337 (2337 N. Milwaukee) at 4:00PM, Galerie F (2415 N Milwaukee Ave) at roughly 4:45PM, and The Whistler (2421 N Milwaukee Ave.) at roughly 5:30PM. Event begins at Sector 2337. Free beer courtesy of Revolution Brewing will be offered at Galerie F. The Whistler is a 21+ venue. This event is totally free.
