TimeOut Chicago

“Meredith Miller performs over half of these acts. Her solos each consist of just a handful of elements: An old song (“Speak Low,” a tango by Piazzolla), plus an object (a gorgeous, handmade galleon hat; a stickpin), plus a visual joke totally unadorned yet fabulously layered. I won’t give any of them away, but there are more in the collection than she showed March 24—an in-progress showcase at Links Hall in January included hat rack trysts and macabre tea parties just as brilliant but not on the Madness menu. All give the sense that we’re seeing things in slow motion, what would happen in the flash of a few seconds “at normal speed.” The pleasure comes from Miller’s expert pacing of each resolution’s reveal.”
