LookOut is Steppenwolf’s performance series that presents the work of artists and companies across genre and form. Emerging artists and performance legends, quintessential Chicago companies and young aspiring ensembles, familiar Steppenwolf faces and new friends.
This lively spin on the noir classic Gaslight playfully captures the claustrophobia, escapist tendencies and resilience in domestic relationships, in a dance theater language full of surprising turns and contemporary resonance.
In Rink Life, the sound score builds upon disparate fragments of information—partially overheard conversations, whispered exchanges, pop-song earworms—and is generated by the performers in real-time.
The LookOut team is always interested in seeing new work and meeting artists; inquiries and invitations to see work are welcome and can be directed to email@example.com. As a multidisciplinary performance series, we are primarily interested in connecting with Chicago-based artists who have an existing body of presentable work. We are particularly interested in offering a platform to artists representing historically marginalized communities and programming work that incorporates diversity across genre, form, and perspective. Please note that we do not accept unsolicited full-length scripts.
