TIGER, the 5th performance from Deke Weaver’s Unreliable Bestiary project, brings together a performance set on a more intimate stage. Through years of research and personal experiences Deke Weaver brings to the audience an abstract and almost curious performance, accompanied by dance, playing different characters to give a sense of location but also light-hearted comedic tone, as well as not straying away from rawness and expressing anger with how little time the Earth may have. A raw and intimate performance bringing together a series of short stories that string together the main point, tigers.
A unique experience regarding the world of wildlife
Written by Edward Huang
A sizable group watched on with curiosity as a man set up the stage in the lower level of the Krannert Art Museum. I was one of the audience, and I had no clue what to expect from this presentation. Perhaps he was going to talk about endangered wildlife. Maybe this was more of a one-person play? Whatever it was, I was eagerly awaiting for the man to begin his show.
Jazz was developed by African Americans and influenced by both European harmonic structure and African rhythms. Jazz was partially from blues, which is a music genre and used to be called Jass. Modern Jazz player, Wynton Marsalis, and his remarkable ensemble are one of the top Jazz band.

This performance was a lot more interesting than I expected. It’s always strange when you show up to a small event for class and then learn that the show you’re seeing is apparently a well renowned advocate for climate preservation. Needless to say, the famous show well exceeded my nonexistent expectations. Deke Weaver’s show hit that strange middle ground between inspiring and crushing existential dread, but the message of climate change awareness is always appreciated.
