The Unreliable Bestiary: BEAR

BEAR is the fourth installment in artist and University of Illinois School of Art + Design faculty member Deke Weaver's lifelong project, The Unreliable Bestiary—a collection of performances and books for every letter of the alphabet, with each letter representing an endangered animal. Ultimately a site-and season-specific theatrical triptych, BEAR will find Weaver and his collaborators delving into the peculiar myths, rituals, and cycles of living of the stocky-legged, big-pawed omnivores. BEAR's fall chapter will take small groups of adventurers on short hikes to bear-related outdoor installations set in local parklands and will culminate with a final tale told in a close, dark, den-like setting. Information about BEAR's winter and spring chapters will be updated at unreliablebestiary.org.
