Inside/Out with Wilfredo Rivera & "American Catracho"

Event Type
Event Description

In 2016 Cerqua Rivera Dance Theatre Artistic Director and award-winning choreographer Wilfredo Rivera begins creating “American Catracho,” a suite centering on the questions What does it take to be American? What does that look like? – questions which Honduras-born Rivera has faced in the two decades he’s been an American immigrant.

Inside/Out is CRDT’s unique seven-month collaboration with the people and places of Chicago. Join us June 3 to get a peek at the brand new work-in-process performed live by the company’s professional Music and Dance Ensembles, and discuss and contribute to this dynamic and timely piece of art.

Cerqua Rivera Dance Theatre fuses music, dance, and visual art to explore and celebrate contemporary American society. Its professional Dance and Music Ensembles collaborate with one another, with visual artists and designers, and with the people and places of Chicago. The company’s multi-disciplinary artwork is theatrical and thoughtful, vivacious and exuberant.
