Ballenarca (In Spanish: ballena 'whale' and arca 'ark') is a giant whale, touring as both a puppet performance and immersive, interactive sculpture. The Butterfly Bar @ The VORTEX hosts the kick-off performances for Ballenarca’s Summer 2015 tour.

An international collective of puppeteers, musicians, dancers and performers have forged a portable, surrealist puppet experience. The magical world of Ballenarca showcases bicycle creations, handmade instruments, dance, and an assortment of transformational puppets housed within a traveling stage. En route to the Wicker Park Festival in Chicago, Canada, and the North East coast, Ballenarca is setting sail across the land bringing free shows to all!!

This show has a flexible format. No two shows will be exactly the same! The earlier shows will have a kid-friendly slant, but be prepared for the late night events to get a bit weird!

Free Parking. Bus Route.
The Butterfly Bar @ The VORTEX opens nightly at 5pm with full bar, hand-crafted cocktails, and snacks.
Patrizi’s @ The VORTEX opens nightly at 5pm with delicious homemade Italian food.
