  • WOLF performances at Allerton Park

    WOLF: a live event with teeth
    Thurs-Mon September 12-16, 2013.
    Buses depart at 6:15pm. Buses return to Krannert Center about 9:30pm.


    Free, but ticketed/limited seating.

    Tickets - available at 5:30pm each day on a first-come-first-served basis – may be obtained from the Park Rangers near the buses 500 South Goodwin Avenue (west side of Krannert Center for The Performing Arts), Urbana.

    The show, which starts on the bus, will last about 3 hours and will include walking outside in the woods.

    WOLF is the third performance in Deke Weaver’s life-long project, The Unreliable Bestiary. After leaving Urbana-Champaign on a park-ranger-guided bus trip to Allerton Park the audience will be led over the river and through the woods to grandmother's house: a barn filled with video, dance, music, and stories that pull some of the threads together. WOLF will sink its teeth into the history, science and myth of this remarkable creature, while putting a domestic finger on the pulse of our uneasy relationship with the wild. If 2010’s ELEPHANT felt like a circus, WOLF will feel like a campfire.

    This performance includes adult language and some graphic nature scenes.

    Dress for the weather, wear comfortable shoes for walking on dirt trails in the woods.

    Accessibility is limited.
