Genesis Ensemble, a Chicago theater and performance company, has taken over three empty storefronts in Jefferson Park to lead the curious on an interactive tour of art and performance inspired by Maira Kalman's idiosyncratic book The Principles of Uncertainty. And the resulting jaunt  - a tour of whimsy and wonder - suggests what might happen if we all took life a bit slower and relished in the particulars of the world around us.

Chicagoans with fond memories of many winter hours marveling at the Art Institute or discovering neighborhood details on summer afternoon walks have the chance to relive their halcyon days with this production (if they can score tickets). Tours are limited to an intimate number of only twelve people per time slot.

The space inhabited on each step of the tour is alternatively airy and light or cheerfully curated chaos. The transforming storefonts offer a dance studio, a gallery featuring work of local artists, a cozy nook of maps, a exhibit of personal collections, an afternoon tea party, and a few more surprises along the way. 

Directed by Libby Hladik, née Ford, The Rest Unknown is playing March 16 – 31, 2012 with Friday tours beginning at 8 PM and Saturday tours beginning at 1, 3, and 5 PM.

The press performances are Saturday, March 17th.

The Rest Unknown plays at 5344 West Lawrence Avenue which is conveniently located one block west of Milwaukee and Lawrence; available by the Blue Line and the Lawrence and Milwaukee buses.

Space is limited (12 per tour).  Tickets should be booked in advance through Brown Paper Tickets at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/224711
