Chris is currently developing the interactive street performance Love's Lost Raree Box, an enticing invitation from the Raree Box Madame in this portable ‘pop-up’ performance. Inside the box, beautiful hand-drawings and carefully lit paper cut-outs reveal an intimate personal landscape. Inspired by centuries-old traveling showmen and their rarity (‘raree’) boxes, solo artist Chris Seibert infuses neighborhood settings with mystery and wonder, seducing willing audience members to view and share stories of love and loss, magic and origins. “Step right up and peep inside this wondrous box!”
