No one else combines new music, original choreography, and visual art like we do, and the Fall Concert Series is the one chance this year to see our work performed live by a full jazz band and complete ensemble of dancers. You will be there for the world premieres of four brand-new works:
- Between Us - Renowned Chicago choreographer Sherry Zunker collaborates with CRDT co-founder Joe Cerqua to create a sexy new piece that explores issues of intimacy and our closest personal relationships.
- Shiver - Award-winning choreographer Stephanie Martinez and acclaimed jazz violinist James Sanders explore breaking up and moving on in this visceral and emotional new piece.
- American Catracho - CRDT co-founders Wilfredo Rivera and Joe Cerqua take on immigration to America – the reasons people move, their harrowing journeys, and the complicated relationship they find when they arrive.
- Corner Sketches, A Tribute to Miles Davis – Stu Greenspan’s arrangements of Davis’ music combine melodies from the legend's early work and rhythms from late in his career, accompanied onstage by new choreography from 3Arts award winner Monique Haley and Marc Macaranas and Raphaelle Ziemba. Chicago trumpet great Pharez Whitted takes up the role of Davis.
