Event Description

 

Join us for the 2021 Chicago Inclusive Dance Festival!

The 2021 festival will take place entirely online.

The festival will feature movement workshops with Sydney Erlikh, Robby Lee Williams and Willyum LaBeija. We will collectively view films by MOMENTA Dance and Revolutions Dance Company. Maggie Bridger will speak to her recent research on the work of local disabled dance artist Kris Lenzo in her keynote presentation, “Sustaining a Bodymind: Disability and the Value of Moving With/In Pain.” New this year, Sunday will consist of a series of family-oriented events, including a movement workshop with Susan Ojala Myers, a viewing of The Penguin Who Couldn’t Swim and a workshop with our friends at KEEN Chicago. See a full schedule below.

All bodies, minds and experience levels welcome. ASL interpretation and CART will be available for all live portions of the event. Captioning will be available for all films/videos. Audio description will be available for Saturday’s movement workshops and can be requested for other portions of the event through the registration form. Reach out to Dgoodma@luc.edu with any questions about the festival.
