Neighborhood Dances [PERFORMANCE]

Neighborhood Dances / West Loop
  • Saturday, October 24, 2015 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Neighborhood Dances [PERFORMANCE] is the result of a weeklong microresidency and participatory public engagement of an ongoing, daily series of microdances situated in front of the houses and storefronts of Chicago's neighborhoods. On October 18th, a team of Neighborhood Dancers will be deployed across Chicago’s neighborhoods to make a dance a day for the week of the 18th-24th. Dances will be scheduled and advertised for the public to witness, each resulting in a fifteen second video geotagged and broadcast to Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. Each participants’ dances will be archived and mined for movement material, workshopped over the week’s time, and choreographed into a performance to be showcased at 7pm on the 24th of October at Defibrillator Performance Art Gallery.
