Yellow Wallpaper is an art exhibition that will accompany Chicago Danztheatre Ensemble and RE|dance group dance performances.

Chicago Danztheatre Ensemble remounts “The Yellow Wallpaper,” based on Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s 1890 short story and reinterpreted for a 2021 pandemic landscape. As a woman in postpartum depression also battles her own rapidly vanishing sanity, her physician husband gives her the “rest cure.” In her bedroom, she fixates on the wallpaper patterns, which transform into other trapped women who reflect her despair through monologues and dance. Feelings of mental and physical isolation will resonate with audiences still reeling from COVID-19.

RE|dance Group performs “The Attic Room,” choreographed by Michael Estanich. “The Attic Room” is an intimate dance story of escape and desire. The dance theatre work for seven dancers reveals the thin line between resignation and hope. Images unfold through sharp dancing and poetic text in a space filled with the forgotten memories of the past.
