ChoreoLab (August 13-18)

A one-week residency for local/regional/national choreographers to create a new piece to be shared in a culminating showing open to the public at the Ruth Page Theater. Choreographers are chosen by special invitation from DanceWorks Chicago’s Artistic Director. Dancers are hand-selected by a ChoreoLab dancemaker to participate in their creative process which mirrors life at DanceWorks Chicago. Days start with a morning technique class followed by rehearsal, coaching, and sharing. Be part of a rewarding week of using your technical skills and artistic voice to collaborate on the creation of a brand new work!

“In the spirit of Dance360, I wanted to close the circle with HUGE THANKS for facilitating the dreaming, art making, and moments of reflection.”    –ChoreoLab 2017 Choreographer Joshua Manculich
