In the face of reality television and an ever-evolving dependency on screen time, Lucky Plush Productions dance theater presents Cinderbox 2.0. Humorous and thought-provoking, this complex consideration of contemporary culture reflects the award-winning troupe’s gift for tackling sensitive subject matter with intelligence and unpredictability. Deemed “a shrewd and witty commentary on recovering the humanity from an increasingly manufactured way of life” by the Chicago Tribune, the piece blurs the line between the audience and performers. This shared space creates a hyper-realized world in which modern media’s voyeuristic tendencies leave an unsettling wake.
