Cerqua Rivera Dance Theatre

Our innovative Inside/Out series returns to Links Hall in Avondale!

First developed with composer and musician James Sanders in 2022 as part of our collaboration, STORIES FROM THE WEST SIDE, this piece explores the real-life Chicago story of a woman’s childhood experience finding refuge on the island in the Humboldt Park lagoon. This year Cerqua Rivera will return to this original composition and add choreography by Michelle Manzanales, Director of Ballet Hispánico’s School of Dance.

Meet Michelle and get inside this thrilling new work from Cerqua Rivera!

Work in progress will be performed and discussed by members of our company. Music by James Sanders and choreography by Michelle Manzanales.

$15 - 30
Available online until noon on day of event and at the door.

Each event includes performance of new work-in-the-making, conversation with the artists, audience participation activities, and the opportunity for you to shape the new work with your feedback and input.
