ONE NIGHT ONLY | Saturday, September 26 at 3 PM
Hedwig Dances, a Chicago-based contemporary dance theater ensemble, known for its theatricality and originality, premieres Rigoberto Saura's KAOS, a dance that responds to recent transformative world events and probes the human need to generate order out of chaos.
Saura’s work explores the chaos/order dichotomy by using digital platforms as an alternate and compelling compositional mode that juxtaposes filmed with virtual “live” dance segments.
The dance reflects on the collective fear of exposure to unsafe, chaotic situations as a brave beginning to re-imagine new forms of order.
Henry Labrada, a Cuban-born dancer and musician based in the Netherlands, collaborates with Saura to produce a sound score that fuses pre-recorded voice, electronic music, and DJ techniques.
