When: Fridays, Saturdays. Continues through Aug. 27 2016
I saw Peacebook, Collaboraction’s festival promoting peace through dance, theater, spoken word, and music, on a rainy night in the heart of Englewood. “This rain is about peace,” performer and emcee Ray of Light told the audience. “You know how many shootings are not happening tonight?” Of the seven pieces on the bill that night, some were more polished than others, but I sense that the majority came from worlds where violence is the norm, and where Ray of Light’s statement is nothing but ordinary realism. Peacebook will change its program with each new venue, but judging from what I saw, each will showcase spirited portrayals, less theatrical than documentary, of Chicago’s most dire realities. —Max Maller
