Mike Daisey: American Utopias

November 1, 2012 @ 7:30 pm - 12:00 am


Co-presented with the Chicago Humanities Festival

“Mike Daisey is a force of nature. (He) can work a story deep into your subconscious and invite true insight.”
–The Post and Courier

Mike Daisey, the passionate and hilarious storyteller who draws his unlikely insights from field research and autobiography, premieres his latest monologue. The MCA introduced Daisey to Chicago audiences four years ago with his haunting If You See Something Say Something; now he returns with a distinctly American vision of utopia—or as he puts it, “how we create civic spaces for ourselves in which we act out our dreams of a better world.”

He takes us along as he pursues the story—from Disney World and its theme park perfection to the drug-fueled anarchic excesses of the Burning Man Festival, from the Masonic underpinnings of our nation’s capitol, to Zuccotti Park, where in the unlikeliest place a new movement is born.
