“The Squanderers” is a sculptural wandering performance that incorporates interaction with the spectators. This performance is an exploration into how we create our identities via the consumerist choices we make.
3 CARD MOLLY is a collaboration between Liz Winfield and Ania Greiner. Since 2003, they have created multimedia stage performances, interactive street interventions, and videos. They have shown work in multiple venues in Chicago, including the 2011 Out of Site series, DEFIBRILLATOR performance art gallery, Link’s Hall, the Spareroom, and the Intimate and Epic festival in Millennium Park in 2006, among others. Liz and Ania have both received an M.F.A. in Interdisciplinary Arts and Media from Columbia College Chicago, where they were each awarded an Albert P. Weisman Scholarship. Using a playful mix of modern dance, butoh, theater, video, and sculpture 3 Card Molly creates entertaining and thoughtful performances that appeal to a wide audience. They seek to disconcert and amuse their audiences by encouraging them to look at objects or their surroundings with fresh eyes, as if seeing them for the very first time.
