Description

Clinard Dance Theatre's new "Chicago's Watershed: A 156-Mile Choreography," takes Stravinsky's revolutionary "Rite of Spring" as a launching point toward heretofore little-known terrain. Stripping the music down to the four hands of the Estrella Duo's piano and playing it off Dmitry Samarov's video-projected ink work, Clinard's original Flamenco-based choreography reveals the dissonance and consonance of the Chicago River and the city it sustains and nourishes. It's a meditation on the hard-won and often brutal beauty of this most American of cities. By marrying the avant garde of the last century to this interdisciplinary work, Clinard reveals a new way to look at a place we thought we knew.

Tickets are $25 general / $10 students with a valid ID. VIP Ticket (Saturday only) $55 includes preferred seating, a complimentary drink, and a show poster.
