Companion Ticket

In celebration of John Coltrane’s A Love Supreme and inspired by the legendary Tree of Hope, Jumaane Taylor’s Supreme Love displays the spiritual, artistic, and historical values that infuse human life. Tap dancers and a quartet of live musicians exchange expressive musical opinions, rediscovering themselves and their art within improvisation to Coltrane’s compositions. Witnessing life’s course, rhythm, and miracles, the dancers and musicians perform with a progressive admiration for tradition in the name of the highest power, truth, and ancestral wisdom. Supreme Love is presented in partnership with the Chicago Human Rhythm Project, where Taylor is Artistic Director.

Additional Event: Post-Performance Discussion on Thursday, April 20, 2023, immediately following the performance.
