LOVESICK by Teatro Luna (2017-Present)

LOVESICK is ensemble-devised performance tackling the current spectrum of violence inflicted on our bodies and the policing of our spirits. Rage, laugh, cry, and then wake the hell up inside these 70 minutes of heightened theatrical adventure filled with original music, movement, and story. We fully intend to mourn, resist, and both decry and celebrate the complexities of our American lives today

LOVESICK is currently in pre-production for an multi-city development tour and a world-premier in L.A in the Spring of 2018. The first version was presented at the Destinos Festival @ The Victory Gardens Theatre in Chicago
