"Gilgamesh and Enkidu" and "Search Party"
Celebrate the last day of the 2019 Pivot Arts Festival with back-to-back performances of "Gilgamesh and Enkidu" and "Search Party." Start your night off with an epic two-man show featuring Ahmed Moneka and Jesse LaVercombe, and end the evening on your feet with "Search Party," a show that exists somewhere between a night club and a contemporary dance performance.

TRIA Theatre presents Gilgamesh and Enkidu by Ahmed Moneka (U.S. debut), Jesse LaVercombe and Seth Bockley: A collaboration between Toronto-based musician/actor Ahmed Moneka, an internationally acclaimed artist from Canada, where he sought political asylum, and actor/writer Jesse LaVercombe with Chicago playwright and director Seth Bockley. This two-man epic reanimates the worlds oldest written narrative with maqam-style Iraqi music and 21st century biography, highlighting Monekas own exile from Baghdad. Gilgamesh and Enkidu fuses highly physical theatre, soul-filled musical expression, ancient text and intimate storytelling, illuminating the tales eternal mysteries of mortality and the universal balm of friendship. Gilgamesh and Enkidu was developed in partnership with Tarragon Theatre, Guthrie Theatre and the support of Canada Arts Council. Gilgamesh and Endiku is supported by the Arts Midwest Touring Fund, a program of Arts Midwest that is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional contributions from the Illinois Arts Council and the Crane Group. Artists and program subject to change.

Search Party by Erin Kilmurray: This live dance work by Kilmurray, creator of The Fly Honey Show, is an experience that is part flight club, part contemporary dance show, part sports event and part house party. Featuring a group of women, this performance relentlessly challenges and reconstructs the boundaries we face during this charged political moment by investigating agency, freedom and societal expectations.
