Companion Ticket

GRASS is a new dance theater work from The Seldoms about turf grass and cannabis, investigating the war on weeds and the war on weed. Through dance, text, and animation, GRASS shows how the lawn and marijuana have each been used to measure morality, impose ideals of citizenship, and to stigmatize, criminalize, and exclude those who don’t conform.

COVID-19 Protocol: Reduced capacity. Practice social distancing. Masks are required. Full details here.

Location Details:

Located at 1306 S. Michigan Ave., just blocks from the Field Museum Campus and Lake Shore Drive, the Dance Center is in the South Loop, one block south of the intersection of Roosevelt Road and Michigan Avenue. The Roosevelt train stop (Red, Orange and Green lines) is three blocks west, and many CTA buses service the area.

Public Transportation

The Dance Center is close to two major train stops: the Red Line at Roosevelt and State, and the Orange and Green Lines at Roosevelt and Wabash. If you are traveling from the South Side, the Metra line offers a good option with a full service stop at the Roosevelt Road Station.

Various buses service the area and include #1, #3, #4, #12 and part time service from bus #129.


Park on the west side of Michigan Avenue between 13th & 14th Streets, or on the west side of Wabash Avenue at 14th Street. Street parking is metered and limited. Tow zones are enforced. Please allow ample time for parking or take public transportation when coming to a Dance Center performance.
