A string quartet plays haunting music. A ghostlike creature wanders in, embarking on a scary journey led by a canine companion.
Close your eyes… You stand on Lincoln Road. You hear a live string quartet playing haunting orchestral moments from childhood. From the shadows, a ghostlike (yet adorable) creature wanders onstage to play. She interacts with the musicians, the audience and you. This endearing phantom creature embarks on a quest to challenge her fears and test her might against huge beings… A giant Cat – A Bat – A Robot - A Swamp Thing… other Ghosts and more. Each step reveals a discovery that brings her closer to understanding her fears, her hopes and… Herself. Experience the FREE world premiere of Fantasma, a dynamic performance art event filled with immense puppetry and spooky tunes. Lincoln Road’s 1100 Block Outdoor Stage and environs will be transformed into a haunting place where mystical creatures abound through the audience, presenting a simple journey.
