Fourteen Chicago Choreographers on Film

After a year of development, the artists of COMMON conservatory will present an evening-length film featuring movement generated by fourteen Chicago choreographers: Braeden Barnes, Katlin Bourgeois Michael, Hanna Brictson, Ophelia Bryan, Meredith Dincolo, Paige Fraser, Joseph A. Hernandez, Alysia Johnson, Ethan Kirschbaum, Andy Lawson, Terence Marling, Jessica Miller-Tomlinson, Jackie Nowicki, & Megan Rhodes.

Behind the Process

Emerging from a year-long creation process, the film features movement from fourteen Chicago choreographers edited and reinterpreted by the artists of COMMON conservatory. CHRONICLE inverts the standard practice of creating dance to give power back to the performers. COMMON's Artistic Director Terence Marling led this production out of his desire to advocate for artists to have more authority inside their work environments and creative processes.

To share CHRONICLE with the widest audience possible, tickets are donation-based. Streaming will begin on June 5, 2021. All proceeds of the ticket sales will be directed to the artists of COMMON conservatory.
