PHYSICAL Theater is coming to Chicago for a nine-day festival hosted at Links Hall in Chicago. The festival runs from July 25 to August 2 and showcases the work being created in the Windy City and across the globe. Featuring performances, workshops and film screenings by six different theater companies from the U.S. and Europe, PHYSICAL invites audiences to experience theater as never before. The festival includes performances from: Lake Simons (NY), Mirage Compañia de Teatro (Spain), John Flax (NM) Silent Theater Company (Chicago), Out of Balanz (Denmark/Finland), James Donlon, Alina Cenal, Karen Hoyer (OR/CA/IL).

There will be a Scratch night for local companies to present 10-15 minutes of original work. It's an opportunity to experience a unique evening of theatre unprecedented in the Chicagoland area ever.

The festival is co-curated by Theater Unspeakable's Artistic Director Marc Frost and Artistic Consultant Alice Da Cunha. Both are graduates of the London International School of Performing Arts and continue to harvest their passion for physical theatre by creating original movement based work in Chicago.

The festival is being held at Links Hall, 3111 N. Western Avenue, Chicago, between Barry and Belmont on the east side of Western Avenue. Free parking is across the street. Tickets are $12 online or $15 at the door. You can even buy a Festival Pass for $35 online or $40 at the door and see as many shows as you'd like! For tickets, go to
