Flatwater COLEassic this Sunday!


With all the shows going on this weekend you could easily spend the entire thing indoors — of course, there’s a touch of ridiculousness to that as this is arguably the most beautiful time of year in Chicago (and it doesn’t last long). The annual Flatwater Classic, a canoe and kayak race along the Chicago River 1,000 competitors strong, is taking place this Sunday, October 4 — sunny and a crisp 60, in case you were wondering — and The Dance COLEctive is using water, movement, racing and community as inspiration for five site-specific performances along the Classic’s route:

10:45–11:00am: Costco, 2746 North Clybourn, along river adjacent to parking lot

11:15–11:30am: Erie Park, 630 North Kingsbury

Noon–12:20pm: Boeing Company Headquarters, 100 North Riverside Plaza

12:30–12:45pm: Monroe Street between Canal and Wacker (Monroe Street Bridge)

1:15–1:45pm: Ping Tom Park Chicago, 300 West 19th Street at South Wells

Times are approximate. Sounds lovely, doesn’t it?
