CDI / Concert Dance Inc: The Poetry Project Review
January 12 @ 7:30 pm
Experience this multimedia dance before it has its world premiere at the 2019 Ravinia Festival.
Emmy Award-nominated choreographer Venetia Stifler and Concert Dance Inc present a work-in-progress preview of their latest project inspired by dance icon, Ruth Page: Dance with Words and Music.
During WWII, Ruth Page choreographed a series of dances set to poetry. She would dance and recite the work of such poets as Edna St. Vincent Millay, E.E. Cummings, and Langston Hughes.
Stifler’s Dances with Words and Music continues the conversation, using many of the poets Page did, but with a contemporary movement vocabulary, live music accompaniment, within a multimedia environment.
Guest artist, Ruth Page Civic Ballet, will present contemporary and classic repertoire, and the preview of Concert Dance Inc company member, Edson Cabrera’s new choreographic work.
