About Winter Concert 2014:
Chicago cultural icons, Melissa Thodos and Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang Architects, are teaming up to combine their singular artistic talents and create a cross-disciplinary, word-premiere dance that explores the fascinating worlds of – and intersections among – dance, architecture and physics. This new work will debut as part of TDC’s Winter Concert 2014 at the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts in Skokie followed by two shows at the Harris Theater for Music and Dance. Our Winter Concert 2014 series also includes TDC’s acclaimed story ballet, A Light in the Dark: The story of Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan, co-choreographed by Melissa Thodos and Broadway legend Ann Reinking with music composed by Bruce Wolosoff, a world-premiere work by Hubbard Street Dance Chicago’s Lucas Crandall, and Panem Nostrum Quoditianum by Ahmad Simmons a dancer with River North Dance Chicago.
