ChaGo PosterChasing “ChaGo”

A Devised Take on Waiting for Godot

Directed by Laura-Jean Schwartau

Chasing ChaGo is a devised theatrical piece based on the iconic Samuel Beckett play, Waiting for Godot. The main characters, instead of ‘Waiting,’ weave their way in the 21st century searching for ChaGo, a famed graffiti artist tagger, using available technology. The show will rely heavily on comedy, music, and movement to tell this existential, absurdist tale.
