Companion Ticket

Exploring issues of morality, spirituality, and community in a story based on Oliver Twist that includes Chicago’s own dancers and a church choir. This story of shame, forgiveness, and redemption is told through gospel music, hip-hop dance theater, and the complex footwork of house dance—one of Chicago’s own unique club cultures. The main character’s journey reveals the influences and roots of black oral and spiritual traditions, while celebrating the community and collective energy of black culture.
