CRDT presents: Identity City

Event Description

June 2 & 3, 7:30 pm @ Studio5 Performing Arts Center

"movers and shakers who dazzled audiences against all odds" - Chicago Tribune

 "formidable dancers and choreographers of notable Chicago pedigrees" with a "powerful" message - See Chicago Dance

Our authentic, relevant, compelling art always speaks to the moment. The 2023 Spring Concert Series features the debut of two full-length pieces that we've made over the past few years:

IDENTITY CITY – June 2 & 3 - An evening-length suite unpacking how gender is felt, expressed, received, challenged; a meditation on finding yourself and finding your place in the world
Cerqua Rivera Dance Theatre has been bringing audiences across the country to its feet for the past year with work from our repertoire. Now our hometown gets to enjoy our new work in its final form - before it debuts anywhere else.

Choreographed by Shannon Alvis and Katlin Michael Bougeois

Celebrate our fascinating differences and inspiring common humanity in an exuberant artistic experience of professional dance and live music like no other!

All concerts approximately 1 hour with a 15-minute intermission. Tickets $35-50; a Sponsorship Ticket includes a General Admission ticket plus a donation to support our equitable artist pay. Additional donations also possible when purchasing tickets and these funds also directly support our artists.
