We’re at it again: The Society of Smallness will be at 2nd Floor Rear Festival!

by societyofsmallness


We’re busiest when it’s freezing! This will be our third year participating in 2nd Floor Rear Festival, the 24-hour celebration of Chicago’s vibrant community of alternative and DIY art spaces. The festival has been key in our development. In 2013 we presented Unsuspicious Activity Around an Attended Package, a roaming, improvised performance that included carrying Clutch on the El, picketing against bigness, and carrying a typewriter. Typing in public places became a thing. While lunching at Penny’s Noodles in Wicker Park, we typed a pardon for a worker who broke a glass. This, and other clerkish gestures since, have laid the groundwork for Documents Bureau, an interactive performance using bureaucracy to playfully co-create with audiences.

Bundle up and come get documented! We’ll be spewing red tape at I Am Logan Square Gallery. Here’s the skinny:
