Visceral Dance Chicago began their fourth season performing at the 25th Anniversary of Dance For Life, followed closely by a fall engagement at the Harris Theater presenting two new works by Erica Sobol and Artistic Director Nick Pupillo. In the spring of their 2016-2017 season, the company is creating a full-length collaboration with the Chicago Philharmonic Orchestra, entitled "The Dream", premiering at the Harris Theater on March 5. Their SPRINGFOUR engagement at the Harris will include the work "Minor Threat" by Canadian-based choreographer Mark Godden as well as a new work by Pupillo, commissioned by the Harris Theater itself. Completing the season, Visceral Dance Chicago will return with the fourth edition of "SOLUS," a signature evening of solos.
