Winifred Haun & Dancers returns to Unity Temple on May 5 & 6 to present The Light in Spring: Dance & Music at Unity Temple.
This will be the Company’s third appearance at Frank Lloyd Wright’s celebrated architectural masterpiece.
The Light in Spring will feature a group work for the entire Company, choreographed by Winifred Haun. Dancers will perform the work around the many sanctuary spaces, in its balconies, stairways, pedestals, dais, and main floor. The work features an original improvisational score played live by Berwyn composer and musician Barry Bennett.
This event will include a solo, “Bench” choreographed by venerable 80 year old choreographer, Lonny Gordon. Mr. Gordon created “Bench” especially for Company Dancer and graduate of Maywood Fine Arts, Myles Harris.
The Light in Spring will also feature the Young Dancers Project at Unity Temple, a workshop & performance series for dancers ages 9 to 18+. Young dancers will learn classic modern techniques and choreography over 3 Fridays in April and May, and have the opportunity to perform with the Company at Unity Temple.
