The Cafe chicago poetry readings

Janet Kuypers

a dream about murder a dream about murder

    The performance art show Dreams was held at the Cafe, located at 5115 North Lincoln Ave. (just south of Foster) in Chicago, IL. This show (entirely by J. Kuypers), had her music in the background, an image display projected along the wall, and even a television so people could more easily see her as the show progressed. Kuypers was even told after the performance was over that some people, even though she was sitting right there and they could watch her, found themselves drawn to watching her on TV.
    There were sound effects and voice alterations (so she carried a high-pitched little girl voice and a lower male voice in parts of the show). Click from your choices of the show for parts of the show (studio and live tracks).
