World-class storytellers Kevin Kling and Clare Murphy create a world premiere production!
Open Eye Figure Theatre Presents
September 20 – 23
Created and performed by Kevin Kling and Clare Murphy

High-flying storytellers Kevin Kling and Clare Murphy create a mythic allegory for our times, as told by farmyard animals! A chicken wakes up in 2018 to the sky falling down. As she runs along a dangerous road littered with foxes and falsehoods, she encounters fables, myths, and history that illuminate and obfuscate her path. What will become of her and the ship she sailed in on?

Kevin Kling has been a regular on the Open Eye stage for many years and for this show he’s bringing back Irish storyteller Clare Murphy, first seen at Open Eye in FOUR DIRECTIONS. These talented artists captivate audiences with surprising, hilarious, and profound storytelling! Only four performances!

“Minnesota’s finest storyteller.”
Pioneer Press about Kevin Kling

“First-rate comic physicality.”

New gallery show: A contemporary take on traditional Japanese woodblock printing
Upcoming Exhibit
September 20 – 30
Opening Reception: September 20, 6pm
(Prior to performance of CHICKEN SHIP)
By artist Matthew Lintott

Matthew Lintott is a UK based artist and printmaker working between Bristol and London. His practice is centered around a contemporary take on traditional Japanese woodblock printmaking techniques. Printing by hand, he explores the tonal variations and delicate marks of Baren-suji that could not be achieved by using a printing press.

“I effectively draw on the reverse of the paper after it has been placed on the inked up block. The translucency of the paper allows me to partially see what I am doing, however for the most part I am making these marks blind.”
