Coinciding with the 150th anniversary of Frank Lloyd Wright’s birth, THE NEW PRAIRIE SCHOOL expands and explodes Wright’s architectural theories into new mythologies of the American Midwest. Through a combination of electroacoustic music, experimental theatre, and dance, performance artist Corey Smith argues for a vision of the Midwest which is urban, queer, progressive, ecstatic, weird. THE NEW PRAIRIE SCHOOL is a reclaiming and remaking of Midwestern radicalism. THE NEW PRAIRIE SCHOOL is writing about music, dancing about architecture. THE NEW PRAIRIE SCHOOL is a love song to flyover country. THE NEW PRAIRIE SCHOOL is partially supported by an Individual Artist Program Grant from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs & Special Events, as well as a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency, a state agency through federal funds provided by the National Endowment for the Arts.
