L’enfant et les sortilèges

  • Studebaker Theater

Chicago College of Performing Arts Opera at Roosevelt University is proud to present Maurice Ravel’s L’enfant et les sortilèges (The Bewitched Child). The great French writer Colette’s enchanting libretto fired Ravel’s unique musical imagination to create one of his masterpieces. A disobedient child is transformed when the things he has destroyed magically come to life in order to teach him a lesson. Performed by the entire graduate class of CCPA voice majors with members of the CCPA Symphony Orchestra, this production will be presented in the Studebaker Theater in Chicago’s historic Fine Arts Building. This performance will be repeated on Sunday, March 19 at 3 p.m.

This performance is free and open to the public. Tickets are not required; seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information call: 312-341-2352.

Scott Gilmore, Music Director

Raw Material

  • Links Hall

Contemporary dance company The Space Movement Project (TSMP) and members of the Chicago arts community will share the stage with special guests from Boston in “Raw Material,” a benefit performance celebrating and supporting OuterSpace Studios. This longstanding and much-beloved space is where many artists, including many of the featured performers, have experimented, rehearsed, and created over the years. After nearly seven years, TSMP will be stepping down from managing OuterSpace; “Raw Material” aims to celebrate OuterSpace’s place in the community and help sustain the space through the spring and summer. General admission is $10, but Links Hall will offer a $40 supporter-level ticket to directly support ongoing space operations.

Friday, March 17 at 7:00 p.m.: TSMP, Allyson Esposito with special guests from Boston, Meida McNeal, Hope Goldman, Ayako Kato

  • Chicago Cultural Center

I'm excited to perform with BodyCartography Project as part of The Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events SpinOff Festival!

closer lays bare the power of physicality and presence through a series of one-on-one dance performances, for one dancer and one audience, in public spaces and multiplies into an expansive performance experience and dance party. Together we play with how the meeting between performer and audience generates the possibility for something new.

closer will be presented by The Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events for the City of Chicago as part of the Fourth Annual “SPINOFF” Showcase of Contemporary Dance Made in the Midwest with local performers Joanna Furnans, Alana Parekh, Amelia Charter, Darling Squire, and Hope Goldman.
