invisible cities group
produced by Studebaker Theater

Founded 1994 by Lesley Bannatyne, Gary Duehr and Robert Goss, the Invisible Cities Group creates large-scale urban detours that combine performance with installations of visual art. Inspired by French Situationists of the 1950s, ICG's mission is to give spectators a fresh perspective of their city, and to place them at the center of their own narrative.
