Pivot Arts Festival closes with two additional showings of What’s Next from our Performing Arts Incubator Program at Loyola University: Ginger Krebs Performance Project and Chicago Fringe Opera. The Incubator Program provides artists with the necessary time and space to develop work that blurs the boundaries between music, dance, theater, and other arts.
Chicago Fringe Opera with BraveSoul Movement presents The Rossini Project
Chicago Fringe Opera—called “the city’s alt-opera company” by the Chicago Tribune—is dedicated to producing artistically excellent and innovative productions of operatic works written in English that stimulate, engage, and empower a diverse community of artists and audiences alike. CFO is developing a new show, The Rossini Project, adapting the music and story of Gioachino Rossini’s classic opera The Barber of Seville and transforming it into a hip hop dance party. The project features live opera singers, MCs, DJs, and breakdancers.
Ginger Krebs Performance Project presents Escapes and Reversals. Escapes and Reversals revels in the heroic efforts people make each day just to keep going. It considers exertion by tangible, striving bodies, compared to the apparent ease of digital bodies moving on screens and in advertisements.
Ginger Krebs is a dancemaker, performer, and visual artist who’s shown work recently at The Arts Club of Chicago, Loyola University, the Chicago Artists Coalition, DCASE’s Storefront Theater, and Hyde Park Art Center. She was awarded a MAP Fund grant for innovation in live performance in 2015, and her 2016 performance Buffer Overrun was chosen for the Chicago Tribune’s Best dance of 2016. Krebs is an Adjunct Associate Professor in Performance and Contemporary Practices at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
