Performance by Chicago artist Sara Zalek in response to Nancy VanKanegan exhibition. This performance will delve into the concept of hOMe with performances inside the gallery, outside of the venue on on the street around Chicago Park District Mozart Park. Viewers are able to watch socially distant and up close. Chairs will be placed in various areas for the audience.
Performance begins at 2 PM CST and will be available on Zoom.
Sara Zalek (they/them/we/our/us), is a performing artist and facilitator. Rooted in physical investigations of trauma, resilience, and hybrids, our work challenges the capitalist quest for the eternal elixir, and asserts that disruption has the ability to create social and ecological change. We relish our complicated relationship to not knowing.
We connect national and international teaching artists with Chicago art makers across genres in the independent and fringe arenas (including dance, Butoh, Physical Theater, Experimental Music). We foster positive communication and arts integration within Chicago’s complex, overlapping sectors. We create opportunities for workshops, performances, and conversations about the body, for the body. Butoh Curious / Butoh Chicago: www.butohchicago.com
Our individual selves serve as microcosms of the collective body. We wish to thrive and to dance, passionately, creatively, respectfully.
