CLOUDS, a performance at Links Hall Chicago sponsored by Handa Gote Research and Development, Prague

Mon, February 5, 2018
7:30 pm
Links Hall
Chicago, IL
$10 - $12 online ($15 door)

“Handa Gote’s show, Clouds, is a terrific lo-fi aesthetic in which the performer, Veronika švábová, simply tells us about her grandparents. They, variously, founded the Czech communist party, were imprisoned in concentration camps, became high-ups in the secret police and were shot as traitors, which makes for a more exciting family album than most, and yet it’s lightly worn and beautifully executed.” 

--Andrew Haydon, The Guardian
