Two beloved Chicago companies that explore identity and culture through dance and music share the Auditorium Theatre’s stage in this one-night-only performance. The world-renowned Ensemble Español Spanish Dance Theater, in residence at Northeastern Illinois University, is “pushing Spanish dance into the 21st century” (Chicago Tribune), fusing flamenco, folkloric, classical, and contemporary styles. The company performs new and classic works from its repertory, including a world premiere piece and Carlos Rodriguez’s flamenco ballet Mar de FuegoCelebrating its 20th anniversary, Cerqua Rivera Dance Theatre “has never looked better” (See Chicago Dance), using dance, music, and visual art to contemplate the ideas and themes that shape our communities. Cerqua Rivera gives the Chicago premiere to company co-founder and artistic director Wilfredo Rivera’s American Catracho, a timely and thought-provoking work that draws upon the stories and experiences of immigrants to the United States.
