Event Description

Hedwig Dances, an eminent Chicago-based dance theater company known for its theatricality and originality, presents choreographer Victor Alexander's Line of Sighs, a dance that plays with illusion and perspective and combines poetic
choreography with sculptural artifacts, vivid images and haunting original music.

Suggested donation is $10. 
This performance is a part of Chicago Artist Month.

Line of Sighs is a collaboration between Hedwig Dances' choreographer Victor Alexander and artist/weaver Deborah Valoma. Named as one of the best
dances of 2013 by The Chicago Tribune, Line of Sighs integrates the conceptual, spatial, rhythmic, and sensual dynamics of weaving and dance, triggering a charged zone of corporeality. The dance builds an arena wherein the metaphors of weaving and dance intermingle, rendering visible the human need for connection. Structured on intervals of four (mirroring four beats in a measure, four harnesses on the loom, and choreographic movements in intervals of four), the six dancers move through an on-stage loom of white bungee cords that frames and alters the viewer's perspective. 
The work features an original score by Brooklyn-based composer Arianne Brame and costumes by Vin.
