"American Me" transforms Links Hall’s white box theater into a purgatory of Americana, an imaginary amalgamation of a diner and bar, where the "American I" is framed as a theatrical myth that is slowly picked apart through the duration of an evening length multi-media dance theater performance. Conceived by Annie Arnoult Beserra in collaboration with Northwestern University Psychology Professor Eli Finkel, this romp through the annals of American identity looks at the social psychology of “I” versus “we” with humor, poignancy, and wit.
The performance experience begins en route to the theater through an interactive mobile website made available to ticket buyers one week prior to the show.
