Naked July- The Living Canvas: Demons
Join The Living Canvas in a journey through the mind of a young woman, encountering creatures of nightmare, mystery, and merriment. Ten performers, clad only in the textures of projections and light, reveal a hidden world where naked flesh morphs into the manifestations of fantasy and nothing is what it seems.
About The Living Canvas
Pete Guither's The Living Canvas has been projecting textures and images onto naked performers since 2001, and Demons is their seventh show in Chicago. Each show has had a different theme and structure, but all celebrate the power of the human body to be an expressive canvas, with an underlying theme of body acceptance. In fact, each show not only has a Q and A session following, but also an opportunity for adventurous audience members to see what it's like to be a Living Canvas.
Nina Metz of the Chicago Tribune called The Living Canvas "intensely peculiar and mesmerizing... It's riveting" Time Out Chicago said "Pete Guither's high-def projections of intricate patterns across naked actors is eye candy on the order of a laser-light show," a view shared by Brian Nemtusak of The Reader "Stoners, Dali fans, sensualists of every stripe, this show's for you." And ChicagoCritic.com called it a "sensual and visceral performance art piece done with craft and good taste."
