1968 Screening at 'Dances With Films' Festival

 

Join us for the world premiere of our musical short film, "1968" at the historic TCL Chinese Theater as a part of Dances with Films "Downbeat: A Celebration of Music and Dance" series.

A rock musical, "1968" follows protesters at the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago, revealing society's divisions and asks the question of how do we make our voices heard when we want change.

Commemorating the 50th anniversary of this historic event, the film not only reflects the past, but also our current divided political climate with incredible dance, song, and story.

Tickets go on sale May 18, so don't miss out!

A Rebel In Venus

8:00 PM20:00

A Rebel In Venus

Premiere if an evening Length Ballet performed by Alma Dance Theater, with an original score by Hope Littwin.

Choreographer Marissa Alma Nick's latest creation,"A Rebel In Venus", shines a light on the powerful (and sometimes discounted) voice of the millennial generation and their response to the current #metoo and #timesup movements. The fresh and vibrant performance enumerates dehumanizing sexual censorships in America today through the lens of sex-positive feminism, and attempts to re-define the iconic goddess figure known as Venus. “A Rebel In Venus” is an extension of the pro-sex movement that marches in SLUT WALKS and screams out PUSSY GRABS BACK. It re-creates a youthful conversation (through dance) about how to view girls and women as fully human, and most importantly: agents of our own sexuality.

KAYLEIGH BUTCHER & HOPE LITTWIN @ Constellation

Get tickets: http://ticketf.ly/1V58L7o

OGNI SUONO
Formed by American saxophonists Noa Even and Phil Pierick in 2009, Ogni Suono is committed to expanding and promoting the repertoire for saxophone duo by commissioning and performing new works. Delicate, raucous, and everything in between, the music of Hong-Da Chin, Alex Mincek, Quinn Collins, James Bunch, and Ian Dicke oscillates between hocketed, layered, and blended textures, pushing the boundaries of expression possible for two saxophones.

Hong-Da Chin - Two Broken Records (2015)
Alex Mincek - Karate (2001/3)
Quinn Collins - Dart: don't be his shadow (2011)
James Bunch - ogni suono come un essere vivente (2009)
Ian Dicke - Straphanger (2012)

KAYLEIGH BUTCHER & HOPE LITTWIN
Kayleigh Butcher and Hope Littwin will be performing Kaija Saariaho's vocal duo From The Grammar of Dreams. This piece takes its text from different poems by Sylvia Plath which are then strewn together to create disjunct, sometimes odd, and surreal dream-like narratives.

GRAHAM STEPHENSON & AARON ZARZUTZKI
Graham Stephenson (trumpet) and Aaron Zarzutzki (synthesizer) are part of Chicago's improvised music community centered around Myopic Bookstore and other long-running platforms. They use the extremities of their instruments to explore unstable sounds and textures. They have performed as a duo in Steuben, St. Paul, and Brooklyn, and in many other contexts and groups of improvisers in Chicago. Their 2013 record, Touching, was released by Erstwhile Records; tonight's show is a release event for No Dice, from Hideous Replica (UK), itself a recording of the Touching release show. Tonight's performance will incorporate a 20th century score in addition to improvisation.
