Event Description
The TImes Are Racing
 
Commedia
Choreography:  © Christopher Wheeldon
Music:  Igor Stravinsky
 
Taking inspiration from Stravinsky's Pulcinella Suite, Wheeldon's ballet is an "elegant piece, beautifully jointed and crafted..." (The Guardian).
 
 
Mono Lisa
Choreography:  Itzik Galili
Music:  Thomas Höfs
 
Wiggling hips. Break-neck twists and turns. Feats of grand athleticism. Galili's incredible spin on the classical pas de deux evokes a daring game of cat and mouse-a fierce, dynamic dance of seduction. Chicago Premiere
 
Bliss!
Choreography:  Stephanie Martinez
Music:  Igor Stravinsky
 
Award-winning, Chicago-based choreographer Martinez shares her newest work. Bliss! is set to Dumbarton Oaks Concerto, one of only two chamber concertos composed by Stravinsky.
 
The Sofa
Choreography:  Itzik Galili 
Music:  Tom Waits
 
Described as a "broad, physical comedy" (Critical Dance), The Sofa takes shape as a love triangle run amok. Music by Grammy Award-winner Waits sets the tone for this comical take on gender, sexuality and relationships. Chicago Premiere
 
The Times Are Racing
Choreography:  Justin Peck
Music:  Dan Deacon
 
Tony® Award-winning Peck brings one of his most "arresting and complex" (The New York Times) works. A "sneaker ballet," The Times Are Racing channels the power of protest and the process for creating change. Chicago Premiere
