We love dance here at FTtDiC and the Harold Washington Library in Chicago is presenting a free dance event entitled “Body Language,” Wednesday July 27 at 12:15pm. (click at bottom for more info) The Leopold Group, currently a DanceBridge resident at the Chicago Cultural Center, will present a sneak peek into their upcoming concert. une elephante explores ideas of duration and endurance for both the dancer and the audience member, trying to find parallels between portraiture and dance.
The second work, Lips of Their Fingers, looks into the historic tradition of pantomime as a part of dance. With a musical score that includes the Beastie Boys, Lips brings new meaning to the phrase ‘body language.’ With an official premiere date for these works in late August, this lunch time program offers a chance for the Leopold Group to step out of the studio, share their progress and get some feedback as they make final preparations.
