Winifred Haun & Dancers will present their highly acclaimed new work, Trashed, as part of Links Hall’s new Trade Routes: a Festival of Artistic Exchange on November 30 and December 2.  Trashed is choreographed by Chicago Dancemaker, Winifred Haun and Australian Contemporary Circus Artist, Emma Serjeant. Trashed combines Modern Dance and Contemporary Circus to tell the story of how humans have to come to clutter their lives with too much stuff, and how all that stuff keeps us from each other.

Winifred Haun & Dancers will share the two evenings with Kanopy Dance Company.  Kanopy Dance will present three works from repertory by its Artistic Directors Robert E. Cleary and Lisa Thurrell. Bound and Determined, a dark aggressive duet;  Lamentation Variation, created in association with, and using the creative structure provided by, the Martha Graham Center of Contemporary Dance;  and Prelude & Fugue, a ensemble work inspired by the music of neo-romantic composer Vittorrio Giannini.

Winifred Haun & Dancers is one of five Chicago-based artists/companies to be selected to participate in Trade Routes.  Each of these five Chicago-based projects were nominated by a local or national presenter as the best of Chicago’s home grown in the 2016/17 performing arts season, and were selected by Links Hall as projects that should not only been seen again, but should be granted the opportunity to represent Chicago-based performance nationally.  Each local artist has selected an out-of-town partner they would like to host in Chicago and split a bill with during the Festival.
