Description

"Never seen a Wookiee bellydance? This can be remedied." - MSN

Do good + nerd out!

Hang with the bellydancing Wookiee, firespinning superheroes, and sword-wielding villains for a brand-new production of fire, nerdery, and wonder every other month! We'll pay tribute to everything from the X-Men to Star Wars, Doctor Who to Silent Hill, Super Mario Bros to Sandman. It's a veritable cornucopia of nerdy delights. (But not the kind you have to fight to the death for.)

So grab a Romulan Ale, help raise money for local non-profit orgs, and geek out - don't miss one of the most unique experiences in the Alpha Quadrant!

November 9: 10% of proceeds from this show will be donated to 826CHI to amplify the voices of Chicago youth.




"Sci-fi seduction." - The Daily Mail (UK)

A Time Out Chicago Critics' Pick, Raks Geek is the premiere bellydance, flow arts, and fire performance company by geeks for geeks - they broke the internet's collective brain with a viral video of a Wookiee bellydancing to a four-piece Klingon band playing an original song in Shyriiwook. Raks Geek is based in Chicago, but they've made waves nationally and internationally on MSN, The Daily Mail, and WGN-TV through their commitment to blend a high degree of artistic and technical mastery with fun, creativity, and themes from nerd culture.

"Absolutely electric from the moment they took the stage... amazing art in motion." - Third Coast Review




FAQs

What time should I arrive?

Our gremlins open the doors at 9:30pm. Join them for a beer or a cocktail! (But please don't order them water. It... does not go well when they get wet.)

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Are you as old as Star Wars Episode II? (We know. We're trying to forget about that one too.) How about Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers? (The movie, not the book.) Congratulations! You can nerd out with us!

(Please be at least 16 years old.)

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

1. Ask your transporter chief to send you.

2. Park your hovercraft on the roof.

3. Take the Addison Red Line, Belmont Brown Line, or the Clark Street bus (#22). (This is a great option.)

4. Bend space and time.

5. Take a cab, Lyft, or Uber. (Another great option!)

6. Drive, but River Song really doesn't recommend it. She won't say why. Something about spoilers. (Parking information here.)

What's the refund policy?

The Genie says no refunds, and who are we to argue?

Is the theater accessible?

We apologize: We're still basically cavemen. Under the Gun Theater is located on the second floor of an older building and isn't wheelchair accessible. However, if you have other needs please don't hesitate to contact us via the interwebs; we're happy to accomodate any requests we can.

Do you have a bar?

We carry a wide variety of drinks from all over the galaxy. In fact, we just got a shipment of Romulan Ale. Also Data recently brought over something green. No idea what it is, but let's drink it together and find out!
