closer by BodyCartography Project

  • Chicago Cultural Center (map)

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. All performances will be FREE!
