Moving Dialogs: Culture in Motion

We are very excited to partner with Chicago Cultural Alliance and act as one of the host museums for "Moving Dialogs: Culture in Motion" to be held Spring 2018. The event will consist of a showing of cultural objects, presentation of dance, and discussion on the intersection and process with curator and choreographer. Selected choreographers will develop new movement (or pull from existing repertoire and re-work) in partnership with and in response to objects and themes present in collections at the host museum. Choreographers/dance companies who are interested in participating please see the link for more details.
