Opening Tuesday, November 27th, from 6PM - 8PM
Join past Chicago Dancemakers Forum Lab Artists in the MCA Commons for live, artist-to-artist exchanges of movement, ideas, and process.
Jamal “Litebulb” Oliver of The Era Footwork Crew (2015 Lab Artist), Molly Shanahan of Mad Shak (2006 Lab Artist), and Meida McNeal of Honey Pot Performance (2010 Lab Artist) are choreographers of different backgrounds and art-making practices. Through embodied conversations with each other and the public, they grapple with questions that impact them each in distinct ways and address how they mine the cultural histories, embodied and genetic memory, and lived experience that surface in their dancing bodies.
Presented in partnership with Chicago Dancemakers Forum
