…and it isn’t over YET!

Wow! What a marathon of fall shows we have all been lucky to be a part of either dancing, designing, or watching!  The fall Chicago Dance Season has NOT disappointed and I am still not done! Since Sept 1st, I have travelled to South Africa and been fortunate to design 8 World Premier dances!! In that time, I have also remounted a show I designed in 2008 and have put up a show 3 times in 4 days in 2 different venues.


I haven’t done it alone;  this season I have worked with some of the best in the business! My thanks to the Harris Theater for Music and Dance Local 2 Crew, The Loeb Playhouse Crew in Purdue,  Links Hall/Constellation , and our wonderful hosts down in South Africa, The Elizabeth Sneddon Crew

The Chicago Fall Dance Marathon is not for the faint at heart, that is for sure!  Up next (next week) is Paige Cunningham Caldarella‘s Chicago Dancemakers Forum performance Off Center, AND a guest spot on River North Dance Chicago’s dance card,  and then off to New York for a week to put up Deeply Rooted’s Generations at the Mark Morris Studios. NYC, I can’t wait to be in you!  Finishing my round robins of dance a re-mount of Kristina Isabelle’s The Floating City in Columbus, Ohio.

A small shout out to my preferred vendor who deals with me almost on a daily basis of adding last minute things to my rental order Chicago Spotlight

On the Flip Side of Each Other

This week has brought me 2 different shows with 2 very satisfying results!

Tonight you can head over to Winifred Haun and Lizzie Leopold’s show at the Ruth Page Center for the Arts, and tomorrow come see The Seldoms close out their hit return of Monument at Stage 773.

970526_10151779702223959_2109144865_nMonument holds a special place in my heart, as it is the first show I designed with Carrie Hanson and The Seldoms.  I have now been with the company for 6 years and traveled near and far (Siberia) with these amazingly talented dancers.  I was so happy to hear that we were bringing this piece back, because it is still a very BIG issue.  I hope you can come check it out tonight or tomorrow afternoon.






If, Martha Graham is your favorite choreographer you should head over and see Vision, Faith, & Desire: dancemakers inspired by Martha Graham, over at the Ruth Page Center for the Arts.  I have been fortunate to also have been working with Winifred Haun for the last 5 years as well. Between her new piece, “Don’t Linger to Long” and Lizzie Leopold’s, “The Near Future”, it is a great evening of dance.





Go see some dance! I hope you enjoy watching these shows, as much as I enjoyed working on them!!!
