Building Blocks: Dancing the City – Moving Through Non-Traditional Spaces

Monday, November 2 at 6:30pm – 8:30pm
Chicago Cultural Center, 78 E Washington St, Chicago, Illinois 60602

The FREE Building Blocks series, presented by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events in conjunction with the Chicago Architecture Biennial, brings together an exciting mix of artists, makers and thinkers to explore ideas around and beyond the built environment as well as notions of what constitutes place – literally and figuratively, physically and virtually – in their work.

For “Moving Through Non-Traditional Spaces,” local choreographers and dancers Victoria Bradford, currently creating a dance each day through her Neighborhood Dances project, Carron Little, founder and director of Out of Site, Chicago, and Khecari, a Chicago-based contemporary dance company, discuss how they create performance in non-traditional spaces and use architecture, found environments and the city as their stage.
