FOLXTALES mingles seven, short folkloric stories—both traditional and modern—as the basis for an outdoor film project that will be projected onto the upper exterior of Krannert Center for the Performing Arts’ Foellinger Great Hall lobby. Each monologue features MFA student actors and has been recorded following Restore Illinois and university COVID-19 safety protocols in its own visual and audio green-screen setting.
FOLXTALES, which loops every 25 minutes, will be available for viewing Th-Su Feb 4-7, 2021, from 5pm to 11pm. Audiences are invited to park in one of the five reserved spots on the Goodwin Avenue side of Krannert Center to experience this of-the-moment theatrical experience each evening. Patrons may also experience FOLXTALES in the Krannert Center Amphitheatre and on the upper terrace with sound via outdoor speakers (masks and social distancing will be enforced at all times) or via the online live stream.
This event will be held unless weather causes a safety concern. Any weather-related announcements will be posted here at 4pm each day.
Closed captioning will be provided.
If you require any accommodations for this event, please contact us in advance at kcpa-eventsoffice [at] illinois.edu.
Street-level accessibility to the Amphitheatre is located via a ramp on the south side of the Center.
