Body Passages

Event Type
Event Description

Body Passages is a dance and poetry project between Chicago Danztheatre Ensemble (CDE) and Poetry Center of Chicago (PCC). Body Passages takes place Saturday, August 19, 8pm (CDE Auditorium, 1650 W. Foster Ave) and Sunday, August 20, 7pm at Uncommon Ground (1401 W. Devon Ave).

Body Passages is an evening of new collaborative works devised by local poets and dancers. Body passages is a new performance series curated by Chicago Danztheatre Ensemble (CDE) and Poetry Center of Chicago (PCC) that encourages the crossing of artists and audiences. CDE and PCC have paired local professional dancers and poets to create their own artist-led projects fusing language and movement. Paired artists participate in on-going conversations and exchanges with other pairs to explore fluidity, form, and rhythm as they relate to a variety of topics. Performances discuss life stages, womanhood, relationships, nature, and more. The two performances at the Chicago Danztheatre Ensemble Auditorium and Uncommon Ground are a translation of these conversational exchanges.
