Event Description

In collaboration with Links Hall and community partners Pullman Arts and Block House Gallery, Co-MISSION curator Take Some Leave Some presents “Tati’s Butter Joint,” June 29 and 30 at The Block House Gallery, 11137 South Langley Avenue, from 7 - 10 p.m. The 2022-2023 Co-MISSION Curators-in-Residence invite artists from their communities to present new or existing performance work both at Links Hall and a neighborhood location outside of a formal theater environment. Links Hall's Co-MISSION Curatorial Residency Program is partially supported by a CityArts Project grant from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs & Special Events.

Tati's Butter Joint is an immersive house party in a home in the Pullman neighborhood that includes performances, a live DJ, and food from local Black vendors. 

Take Some Leave Some is a multidisciplinary performance collective that uses original sound, choreography, film and installations to create experiences reflecting and celebrating Black women in our lives—their labor, courage and wisdom even in their imperfections.

All events are ticketed on an income-based sliding-scale donation. Attendees are encouraged to buy online advance tickets to support turnout and accommodate access needs. All donations help fund the revitalization and reopening of the Rizal Center, a Philippine community center located in Lakeview, which closed in 2017. For tickets and more information, visit
