New Dances 2020 Opening Night PERFORMANCE

There’s a whole lotta NEW going into New Dances 2020, the 20th anniversary of New Dances under the Thodos Dance Chicago umbrella, and the third year of our partnership in support of Chicago-based movers and makers.

Thank you for your patience in awaiting ticket information!  One of the many good things about this year: seating is unlimited, so an excellent seat awaits you, well, unless you give away your fave chair at home!

Please join us for OPENING NIGHT of New Dances 2020 featuring PREMIERES by Chicago-based dancemakers Sydney Jones, Drew Lewis, Brian Martinez, Joanna Meccia, Joe Musiel, and Peyton Winker.  Click HERE for the New Dances 2020 Opening Night Program, generously underwritten by Diane H. and Paul C. Reilly.

DanceWorks Chicago and Thodos Dance Chicago will donate $5 from each Opening Night ticket sale to Black Lives Matter Chicago, a Chicago-based beneficiary selected by the artists of New Dances 2020. Your purchase supports Chicago artists and organizations exercising the muscles of courage in creativity and community!

GRATEFUL for UNDERWRITING of NEW WORKS by Marta Babson, Parke and Lena Ballantine, Pamela Crutchfield, Charlie Gardner and Patti Eylar, Lauren Vitale, and Ula Widawska!

This program is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency.

Did we mention the cast of 16 fabulously diverse movers who will be performing in these new creations?!
