FUTURA World Premiere at the Dance Center of Columbia College

Event Type
Event Description

Futura sweeps across the Dance Center stage in an eye-popping spectacle of bold geometry, rich theatrical movement, and a rousing musical score. Inspired by Bauhaus modernist art, Hedwig founder Jan Bartoszek’s newest work is a vibrant and colorful exploration of how dance shapes and is shaped by society, art, architecture, and design in the 21st century. A collaborative multidisciplinary work underscored by themes of confinement and freedom, this piece includes an opening movement designed in a groundbreaking collaboration between Hedwig Dances, Bauhaus Dessau, the IIT Institute of Design (established as the New Bauhaus 80 years ago) and Leviathan. Futura is “a visual metaphor for Bauhaus’s revolutionary ideology” (Chicago Reader).
