The Plague is back. Again.
Back in September, we told you about Fifth House Ensemble's production of "Black Violet" a film/music collaboration with artist Ezra Claytan Daniels, telling the story of a black cat and albino rat in Plague-ridden London. This week the group returns with "Black Violet II: The Great Exodus of The Tamed," a continuation of the tale (Chicagoist offers an explanation of the story and the music here). You can catch a free performance tonight at 7 p.m. at the Chicago Cultural Center, or head to SPACE on Thursday at 8 p.m. ($15 general admission, $25 for a reserved table with Goose Island Matilda and Whole Foods cheese).
