CHICAGO – Antibody Corporation, a mission-based organization specializing in mind-body integration, will present three premiere performances of Against Being from October 30 to November 1 at Links Hall. Against Being is a new project of Antibody Corporation artistic director Adam Rose, one of four recipients in 2014 of Lab Artist Awards from the Chicago Dancemakers Forum.
Against Being is “a dance about nothing and an exploration of space — the space between language and dance,” says Adam Rose, who also directs the piece. “It places dance within the context of the philosophical debate between being and becoming.” This new work features Eryka Dellenbach, Brooke Underwood and additional performers including Rose himself. The complete performance schedule is as follows: Friday, October 30 at 7pm; Saturday, October 31 at 7pm; and Sunday, November 1 at 7pm. Tickets are $10–$12 and available now online at linkshall.ticketfly.com.
Links Hall at Constellation, located at 3111 North Western Avenue in Chicago, is easily accessible via the CTA’s number 49 Western and 77 Belmont buses. Local street parking is also available.
The premiere of Against Being is supported by a 2014 Chicago Dancemakers Forum Lab Artist Award, The MacArthur Funds for Arts and Culture at The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation, and a CityArts Grant from the City of Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events.
