CHICAGO INSPIRED

We’ve just wrapped a new short film which will premiere as part of Thodos Dance Chicago’s 2015 winter concert beginning Saturday, February 20th at the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts, and continuing March 7th at the Harris Theater for Music and Dance.  The film features  seven choreographers whose works will appear in this new performance, digging into the meaning of “Chicago Inspired”. The concert features a reprise of the effervescent “Fosse Trilogy,” celebrating ’60s dances by native Chicagoan and jazz dance great Bob Fosse. Additionally, Melissa Thodos premieres “Near Light,” and guest choreographer Garfield Lemonius presents “Memoirs.” Two pieces by Chicago modern dance pioneer Sybil Shearer will again grace the stage, as will the beautiful “Lullaby” choreographed by Brian Enos. Works by Company Members, John Cartwright and Tenley Dorrill, will be presented after making their premiere at TDC’s “New Dances 2014”. The film also includes former Fosse dancer, and Chicago dance legend Sherry Zunker, and former Sybil Shearer Dancer and Morrison-Shearer Foundation board member Toby Nicholson.
