Welcome to Collaborations! The Chicago based festival that demonstrates what happens when two or more of any art form merge within the same piece. Its purpose, beyond producing a lively, eclectic, one-of –a kind show, is to bring artists together and to help unify the often segregated Chicago Arts Community. Collaborations are important not just in art, but in life. By working together, artists, and people in general are stretched further than themselves. As an audience member, you make up the final part of our collaboration!

Collaborations is usually held in the spring of each year. It involves usually about 26 different groups all collaborating. Each piece is about five minutes in length, has a solid theatrical concept, and involves a different combination of artistic disciplines. The art forms featured before in this festival include but are not limited to: dance, theater, spoken word, poetry, film, comedy, music, visual art, maskwork, circus arts, bubble juggling, puppetry, fashion, human beatboxing, and parkour (freerunning). Everything that exists in life is an art form however, and we would love to hear from you about an idea! New artists and art forms are always welcome!
Collaborations Atlanta - Where art Forms Collide! This is a show that demonstrates what happens when two or more of any art form merge within the same piece. Watch as dancers, acrobats, musicians, magicians, jugglers, actors, spoken word artists, poets, visual artists, film makers and many other Atlanta artists light up the stage with a presence that may make you laugh, cry, or shudder in awe! Each piece on the program is a collaboration between two or more art forms. Collaborations are important not only in art, but in life. As an audience member you make up the final part of our collaboration!
