POINT | LINE | PLANE features dances by Hedwig Dances’ artistic director Jan Bartoszek and resident choreographer Victor Alexander that extend beyond literal representation to express internal reality and “blur the line between movement and visual art.” (Chicago Magazine)
Jan Bartoszek previews newly minted dance sections from her upcoming Futura project. Applying central principles of the modernist Bauhaus art movement---abstraction, playful thinking and experimentation---Bartoszek builds a richly visual and theatrical dance terrain.
Hedwig Dances reprises Victor Alexander’s critically acclaimed Line of Sighs, a collaboration with weaver Deborah Valoma. Line of Sighs integrates the conceptual, spatial, rhythmic, and sensual dynamics of weaving and dance, triggering a charged zone of corporeality. It’s not often that my immediate reaction to a dance is “Hot damn do I want to see that again…”(Zac Whittenburg, Time-Out Chicago)
