Event Description

Still Inspired’s 10th season features Chicago visual artist Jennifer Cronin and her series titled “There Is Still Magic Here.”

Still Inspired presents an evening-length dance performance inspired by Cronin’s series with choreography by: Annie Conway, Brian Hare, & Laura Thurston. Performance ensemble and movement contributors include: Katie Louise Dabson, Ava Wichser Foerster, Mark Gonzalez, Erin Hoeger, Lauren Reed, and Abigail Stachnik. The performance is inspired by 8 works within Cronin’s “There Is Still Magic Here.” Following the performance, patrons are invited to an artist talk and Q&A with Cronin, Still Inspired choreographers, and the performing ensemble.

“Seemingly ordinary spaces became portals to something extraordinary–the space between day and night, between known and unknown, between here and there. In these liminal spaces, I found magic. I let myself remember what it felt like to play outside as the sunlight faded away. I let myself play in the space between reality and somewhere else, delighting in symphonies of color and bursts of neon brushstrokes. My new paintings of this world illustrate a place filled with color, mystery, and possibility. These paintings show that even here and now, there is beauty to relish in, joy to surrender to, and magic hiding in plain sight.”
- Jennifer Cronin
