Becoming: Exploring Identity (Chicago)

Event Type
Event Description

The show "Becoming" previously seen in Austin, TX and Santa Fe, NM is coming to Chicago!

Life is not black and white. We live in shades of gradients. Like an ice berg, there is a lot below the surface that the world may never see. Embark on a journey with us through dance, music and story to explore the concept of identity. Who are you? Who do you want to become?

Witness emotional breakthroughs, personal revelations, and moments of clarity as performers peel back the layers of their identities and reveal their true essence.
