"artists ... you should know about" – Chicago Reader

Experience the World Premiere of our 2021 New Work:

> SHIVER – Three dancers portraying the parts that make up the whole of a person separating from the past and moving toward growth
> SOUL REMEDY – Exploration of the Aesthetic of the Cool, a culturally specific phenomenon rooted in the Black American experience; a celebration of artistic legacy without appropriation (year 1 of 2-year project)
> IDENTITY CITY – A groundbreaking work unpacking how gender is felt, expressed, received, challenged (year 2 of a 4-year project)
> MOOD SWING – Our continuing response to the pandemic crisis and social justice movement.

Our mission for 20+ years – to apply the talents of a diverse group of collaborative artists to concerns that shape our community. Last year we only paused a few weeks to figure out how to work in and respond to a turbulent year. In 2021, our multitalented, multicultural company continues its groundbreaking, timely, moving work. #weneverquit
