MetLife New Stages for Dance, Elements Contemporary Ballet, Aerial Dance Chicago

Jul 19 | North Shore Center for the Performing Arts in Skokie

"...gravity-defying moves that take dance in new directions, literally." -Time Out Chicago

 

Aerial Dance Chicago and Elements Contemporary Ballet share the stage in Silk and Steel, a concert that takes the unique aesthetic of contemporary ballet into the vertical realm. Featuring Surge, a world premiere collaboration between Elements and ADC, Silk and Steel maximizes the artistic resources of the two companies with multiple hanging silks, aerial dancers in rope-and-harness, and earth-bound ballerinas performing contemporary choreography beneath awe-inspiring aerial dance.

The concert will also feature two past works by ADC: Symbiotic (2009), critically acclaimed for its stunning optical illusions; and the emotionally-charged unEarthed (2011), in which an oceanic, custom designed aerial hammock set creates a backdrop for revealing human attitudes about their relationship with the natural environment. Additional repertory presented by Elements will be a re-mounting of Artistic Director Mike Gosney’s hypnotic 2010 ballet, Curiosity, plus a revival of Resident Choreographer Joseph Caruana’s award-winning pas de deux from 2009, Angel.
