ABOUT THIS PROGRAM
This program offers an opportunity for an up-and-coming Chicago practitioners to curate a series of performances over a two week span. During this time residents are encouraged to approach these performances as a unit, placing them in conversation with one another. For the launch of this program curators Kara Brody & Amanda Maraist chose to spotlight three movements makers in a series titled: work around.
Built from a need for more support towards creative processes, work around aims to redirect the desire for finished products by allocating resources towards developmental stages of artists’ work. This two-week series amplifies the process of three exceptional Chicago-based dance artists – Cat Mahari, Tuli Bera and Drew Lewis. With 40+ hours of rehearsal space, each artist will dream up an iteration of their in-progress work for a two-weekend showcase.
