Cupola Bobber's The Field, The Mantel
Four Stars from Time Out Chicago: "This is an uncanny performance, and one Chicago should embrace..."

"What makes their work so compelling are the additional elements of Cupola Bobber's homemade, minimal visual aesthetic and their charmingly inelegant, often hamhanded choreographed movements. This combination of the physically gawky and the elegance of their theoretical and philosophical explorations results in an absurdity that's both very funny and profoundly humane." - Monica Westin, New City Chicago

"Depending upon which side of the wall you're viewing, you'll see either Myers, now portraying Buffalo Bill and wearing a cardboard horse, or his performing partner Stephen Fiehn, silently manipulating shadow puppets against a set of homemade light boxes. This is the beguiling world of Cupola Bobber, the performance duo staging its new work, The Field, the Mantel, in its intimate Humboldt Park studio." - John Beer, Time Out Chicago

Starring Buffalo Bill, Groucho Marx, Malcolm X, Ronald Reagan, Martin Luther King and Lyndon B. Johnson, the performance explores how a nation's history gets told and why.

Two performers in knee-length nightshirts stumble blindly through a set of 65 cardboard boxes, unpacking their large archive by dreaming, and filling in the void that is the narrative history(s) it suggests. They are both Buffalo Bill Cody standing on the moon, before anybody else.  They discover the race races that were in the Wild West Show - Cody's show that defined the still-young America for much of the world - and the race war at the core of that show's drama.  They discover that all of it is their national history, and they want to help imagine a new better future.
