Event Description


Lawson Dance Theatre is thrilled to bring the Periodic Table of Elements to life in its latest production, elemental, an original ballet exploring the chemical elements in two acts: organic and inorganic. Founding Artistic Director Tiffany Lawson has teamed up with chemist Josh Kurutz, Past Chair of the American Chemical Society of Chicago, to create something truly beautiful - a marriage of science and dance. 


Aside from the new collaboration between choreographer and scientist, Lawson Dance Theatre has welcomed other artists to enhance the production. True to its mission, the company is using live music and hired Nashville composer Brianna Bjerke to create the original composition. LDT is also joining forces with University of Maryland alums Paul Deziel for projection design and Christopher Brusberg for lighting design, DePaul University student Matthew Zalinski for prop design, and Michael Sherman, Ohio State alum and Founding Director of former company, Innervation Dance Cooperative, for costume design.
