Every House Has a Door: “The Three Matadors”

Saturday, February 20th, 2:00 PM

Poetry Foundation
61 West Superior Street
Free admission

Chicago-based collective "Every House Has a Door" bases this performance on a passage of Jay Wright’s The Presentable Art of Reading Absence (2008) that appears in a hybrid form combining poetry and the conventions of a stage play.

In collaboration with the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation in honor of the 35th anniversary of the MacArthur Fellows Program, which recognizes exceptionally creative people who inspire us all
