Dance, architecture and physics come together
Leading artists from Chicago’s culture scene, Melissa Thodos and Jeanne Gang, are combining their singular talents to create a cross-disciplinary, world-premiere dance that explores the fascinating worlds of – and intersections among – dance, architecture and physics.
This exciting new work, as yet untitled, will debut as part of Thodos Dance Chicago’s Winter Concert 2014 on Saturday, February 22, 2014, at 8 p.m. at the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts, located at 9501 Skokie Boulevard in Skokie, Illinois.
The program also includes: TDC’s acclaimed story ballet A Light in the Dark, the story of Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan, co-choreographed by Melissa Thodos and Broadway legend Ann Reinking; a world premiere work by Hubbard Street Dance Chicago’s Lucas Crandall; and Panem Nostrum Quoditianum by Ahmad Simmons of River North Dance Chicago. Tickets are $26-46 or $20 for students. For tickets and information, visit northshorecenter.org.
