Promise at Pleasant Home

Event Type
Event Description

Promise is a beautiful full length dance, choreographed by Winifred Haun. Inspired by John Steinbeck's East of Eden, Promise focuses on the women, images and psychological themes found in the epic novel.  At this event, you'll see Promise re-made especially for the rooms and spaces of Pleasant Home, a historic Prairie style mansion, designed by architect George Maher.  The audience will travel from space to space throughout the house, enjoying the dance performed within the architecture of Pleasant Home.

Come one hour early and enjoy a glass of wine and a self guided tour of Pleasant Home!

Company Dancers Zada Cheeks, Ariel Dorsey, Timothy Bowser and Jesse Hoisington perform lead roles.  Kanopy Dance Co, of Madison, WI will perform an opening act in the backyard of the mansion.

Street parking is available. Pleasant Home is near the Oak Park Ave. stop on the CTA Green Line.
