This "convergence of Chicago artists," presented by Performing Arts Chicago and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, runs through April 18. The avant-garde showcase features some of the city's most adventurous artists working in the disciplines of theater, performance, circus arts, storytelling, dance, music, video, and sound and installation art. All activities take place at the Athenaeum Theatre, 2936 N. Southport, on the main stage and in the Lobby studio; the sprawling arts complex also hosts installations in other spaces. Prices for most events range from $5 to $20, and some installations are free; see listings for details. For tickets and more information, call Performing Arts Chicago at 773-722-5463.
