Locations

One of our goals with Pericles was to showcase the amazing talent of Milwaukee and our beautiful city itself.  The multiple locations in Pericles (Tyre, Tarsus, Ephesus, Pentapolis...) allowed us to showcase many Milwaukee neighborhoods, parks, theatres, landmarks, and even a few friends' backyards.

Filming Locations

Taking the Pericles project to multiple locations gave us the freedom and opportunity to transform the Milwaukee Community into our various kingdoms (and the ability to find creative solutions to some filming challenges...)

Every mark on our map is a filming location for the play, our "princing about Milwaukee" series, or a livestream location.

Sometimes, we couldn't film in person (see aforementioned challenges) but that didn't mean we abandoned our commitment to showcasing Milwaukee and the surrounding community!

Instead, our talented visual artists took to the page (or maybe super high tech computer drawing app and screen) and drew Milwaukee landmarks into our animated epidodes.
