Event Description

A World Premiere by Founder/Director Stephanie Martinez

Saturday, October 3: 12:00 PM, 4:00 PM

**The 4:00 PM performance on Sunday, October 4 will be live-streamed via Facebook.**

PARA.MAR presents a weekend of outdoor donation-based, public dance performances in an expansive outdoor lot in the Avondale neighborhood of Chicago. In addition to ensuring these performances are safe and socially-distanced, we are hosting a free, family-friendly, all-abilities movement class before each performance. For your safety, attendance is limited. Reserve your spot now!

Seating: In order to minimize shared surfaces, PARA.MAR will provide a few chairs for those who are unable to stand for the duration of the performance (30-40 minutes). PARA.MAR encourages attendees to bring their own seating (ie. camping chair, blanket) or to enjoy the performance standing
