About this Event

Beginning | Middle | End

Facebook

Beginning|Middle|End is a live narrative variety show that's part comedy, part storytelling, and all multimedia circus, hosted bi-annually at the Hideout in Chicago, IL.

B|M|E is the brainchild of illustrator/writer Megan Henricks and documentarian Steven Jackson, two people who love narrative structure but are deathly afraid of commitment. Together they produced the perfect solution to this predicament: A night of many stories, in many mediums, organized tidily into beginnings, middles, and ends.

The show has featured comedians from Comedy Central and Second City, performers from Netflix's "Easy", radio producers from WBEZ and Third Coast, storytellers, illustrators, musical guests and so much more.

The theme of this special edition of Beginning | Middle | End is Chicago.

About the curator:

Anna Holmquist is the whole package. From writing songs on the piano in middle school, to playing in groups as diverse as the kooky indie rockers The Curls and their main songwriting project Ester, music has provided Anna a consistent way to process life experiences and experiment with form and performance. Once, a well-written jingle even won them a year's supply of pasta.

Since 2011 Anna has been a lynchpin of the Chicago DIY scene, criss-crossing the city’s network of basements and bars in an assortment of groups, forging alliances across all manners of Chicago creatives. All the while Anna has been steadily collecting memories, emotions, and experiences, and translating them into song. This patient and careful work provided the material for Curtains, the idyllic debut album by Ester released last year that garnered praise from the likes of the Chicago Tribune and Midwest Action.

Hot on the heels of performances at Pitchfork Music Festival 2018 and SXSW 2019 with the Curls and a TNK Fest show with Ester, Anna is a performer you're gonna want to say you saw here first.
