Next week Chicago Moving Company opens its latest installment of Dance Shelter, a mixed-bill mini-fest at Hamlin Park featuring CMC and its artists-in-residence. On the program are:
- Breakbone Dance Co. with Fix Your Teeth, Bitch (a collaboration between Breakbone AD Atalee Judy and the riveting Carolyn Hoerdermann I saw earlier this month at Collaboraction’s Sketchbook) and septet-in-progress Excavation of Remains, which may or may not be a clue as to what lies ahead with Judy’s CDF Lab Artist project Architecture of Fear: an excavation.
- Chicago Moving Company, soldiering on into an astounding 37 years in the dance scene, is reviving the duet Hati-Hati with Jeremy Blair and Rachel Bunting (a Reader Critic’s Choice upon its premiere).
- Cindy Brandle Dance Company, fresh off its recent full-length at Ruth Page, is continuing a fruitful collaboration with composer Barry Bennett as well as maximizing its familiarity with Hamlin’s theater by offering a space-specific improvisation.
- Bunting’s project The Humans are remounting and reworking their duet who I am, who I am not, a take on twindom (Bunting’s sister Collin is an accomplished fashion designer and dance costumer) involving “a human terrarium, mirrored cubes/heads, and shadow puppets.”
Dance Shelter runs over two weekends: June 4 & 5 and 11 & 12, all at 7:30pm. Tickets and more information are available here.
