Marlene Skog Dance: Consider It Not So Deeply.

Event Type
Event Description

Madison, WI-based choreographer Marlene Skog will present her second evening-length contemporary ballet concert
'Consider It Not So Deeply.' in Chicago, August 31-September 1, 2018 at Ruth Page Center for the Arts, 1012 N. Dearborn Street.
'Consider It Not So Deeply.' explores the conflicting layers of the female psyche in Shakespeare’s women through Skog's powerful,
demanding choreography, Shakespeare's theatrical prose, and original sound, designed by Matan Rubinstein and Timothy Russell.

The concert features a lively 60 minutes of evocative contemporary movement accompanied by both original music and that of Vivaldi, as well as spoken word. It includes a cast of 15 dance artists and one actor performing a mix of solo and ensemble works that "unearth the shifting roles and identity of females within Renaissance society, across cultures and throughout history," said Skog, an assistant professor of dance at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
