Trinity Irish Dance Company
February 2 @ 7:30 pm
The company known for progressive Irish dance returns to Chicago for the first time in over a decade with its distinct combination of “award-winning exactness with an experimental edge” (Chicago Tribune). Called “sophisticated and commanding” by the Los Angeles Times and “impossibly complex” by The New York Times, Trinity has sold out shows around the world and at distinguished venues throughout North America, including the Kennedy Center, the Joyce Theater, and Royce Hall. The company has also made memorable appearances on television shows like Conan, The Tonight Show, and Good Morning America.
This one-night-only evening on the Auditorium Theatre’s historic stage includes the world premiere of the company’s most ambitious work to date, An Sorcas (The Circus). This collaborative work created by Founding Artistic Director Mark Howard and company members Chelsea Hoy and Michael Gardiner comments on the juxtaposition between substance and spectacle, along with electrifying works like Howard’s Soles, a tribal and timeless explosion of lightning-fast agility.
