2-for-1 Tickets to Bebe Miller Company’s In a Rhythm
Bebe Miller Company presents In a Rhythm, a suite of new dance works based on the dynamics of adaptation and translation. Inspired by the writings of Gertrude Stein, Toni Morrison, and David Foster Wallace, whose voices capture diverse cultural relevancies through their structure of language, In a Rhythm looks at the syntax of movement – how we apprehend meaning through the juxtaposed dynamics of action and context in time and space. This performance is part of the Process v. Product festival hosted by the Dance Center of Columbia College Chicago, which focuses on ways in which concert dance presentation can be a document of process rather than dance as a consumable product. The festival features performances, workshops, artist discussion, and commissioned blog posts.
Bebe Miller Company performs In a Rhythm Thursday-Saturday, April 5-7 at 7:30 pm at the Dance Center, 1306 S. Michigan Avenue in Chicago. WTTW members may purchase two tickets for the price of one, subject to availability.
