Andrew Lund

When: Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through May 28 2017
Price: $1-$8
Squirreled away in a converted shipping container with some ecology textbooks, scientific treatises, handwritten maps, and old LPs, an agitated Andrew Lund tries to manufacture solace in isolation. He’s discovered a plant that dances in the sun, expressing the kind of involuntary freedom he desperately wants—even while he seems incapable of simply opening the door of his self-imposed prison and leaving. This premiere from One on One Chicago, in which one performer and one audience member huddle together for 15 minutes, is full of evocative ideas and cryptic messages about faith, science, nature, and purpose. Although the piece might resonate more strongly if Lund allowed for more spontaneous interaction with his spectator, both the performance and the highly manipulated physical space continually provoke the imagination. —Justin Hayford
