Congrats to the choreographer and member of Thodos Dance Chicago on winning the first A.W.A.R.D. Show! and ten thousand dollars to make new work — if you missed Forget What You Came For? on tonight’s and Thursday’s programs, note that a brand-new piece by Tomlinson will be on TDC’s New Dances bill June 17, 18 and 19 at Ruth Page.
