Emmy Award-winning choreographer and artistic director, Venetia Stifler, returns with her dance company for another exciting summer season. These performances sell out every year - purchase your tickets today.
Highlighting this year's performances is a preview of "The Chicago Project: Future Present." A critically-acclaimed full-length work created in 1985, Ms. Stifler's multi-media work fusing music, dance and photography of Chicago's architectural landscape as a backdrop will be reimagined with the eyes of a choreographer who's creative process and point of view have evolved. Ms. Stifler recently received an Independent Artist City Arts grant award from the City of Chicago's Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events for this project.
Also on the program, audience favorites "When All Is Said and Done/German Songs," and last year's premiere "Fly Me To The Moon."
SPECIAL GUEST, Ruth Page Civic Ballet, will perform the completed work, "Movements," that was part of the historic 2015 cultural exchange program with Cuba's Escuela Nacional de Ballet and partially funded by the MacArthur Foundation's International Connections Fund.
