Crossing Ashland

Choreography: Brock Clawson I Music: John Adams, Michelle McLaughlin, Martin Tillman, M83, Jeremy Limb

 
Choreographed by a Chicago native and named for the well-known Chicago street, Crossing Ashland explores the yearning for connection that exists in the human race.

Continuum

Choreography: Christopher Wheeldon I Music: György Ligeti

 
A stunning abstract rendering of music into movement and patterns, this piece is enchanting, wistful, and profound.

Episode 31
Choreography: Alexander Ekman I Music: Mikael Karlsson,
Ane Brun & Erik Satie

 
Episode 31 had audiences leaping to their feet at the 2013 Chicago Dancing Festival. The Chicago Tribune said “combine vigor of the Harlem Shake, the graceful swoops of Jet Li and the stomps of a tribal rite into one dance performance, and you get Episode 31”.
