Life is searching process and it never goes as we planned. But that’s OK because life is improvisation! We can just try to make the best decision in the moment. In the environment created by video artist Edyta Stepien, the evenings introduce the form of contemporary and cutting edge dance, music and video improvisation with award-winning performers from Chicago. Witness how they free themselves, caught in the moment, and released from it again. Contemplate and enjoy the art of being, or the utmost art of stillness in motion, to experience the moments of letting yourself just Be.
