Beyond This Point

Earl and Darielle Linehan Concert Hall

What does a musician become without their instrument? Living up to their name, Chicago-based collective ensemble Beyond This Point explores this question in a concert that both breaks and expands what it means to be a musician and a performer. The musicians’ “instruments” run the gamut from a loose jack cable, to sheets of bubble wrap, to an IKEA desk lamp, to their own bodies and voices.
