GRUNT Chicago Festival Pass

About this Event

Admits one to all 2019 GRUNT Chicago Festival performances ; both weekends at Links Hall -- April12-14 & May 10-12, 2019...

Weekend #1: APRIL 12-14

In Felt + Flannel creator and performer Molly Hess will use scissors but promises not to run with them. Part dance performance, part craft project, this piece maps memories to make memories, and wonders if hope and nostalgia are the same feelings. Throughout the performance, the audience will be given authorship and invited to create and play along with the performers.

J’Sun Howard will present work in progress, aMoratorium, a homage to visual artist Charles Wilbert White (Chicago) exploring black male identity, visibility, temporality and its absence.

The Space Movement Project will present Six of One, an in-progress improvisational score in which dancers perceive the sensory feedback of singularity within a pairing. The work features an original sound design developed in collaboration with Chicago-based composer Shelly Steffens.

Weekend #2: MAY 10-12

Ellice Patterson of Abilities Dance Boston will present Bi-modal (adapted from a previous work entitled Tri-modal). The piece focuses on her most recent spinal surgery and the moving through space with and without a mobility aid.

April Sellers Dance Collective will present Patriot Erectors, which examines the root of our disconnection to national identity and asks the question: Can you be queer and be a patriot and what does it mean to be a queer American?

Building off her exploration of secondary trauma that she began with her work, Sleeptalk, dance/movement therapist and choreographer Ashley Fargnoli will present a new work in progress called IMPACT. IMPACT reveals how the body processes rage and the necessity for recuperation, stillness, and holding when working with populations who have undergone severe trauma. So often anger and rage are depicted as ugly and shameful; IMPACT aims to show the grace and beauty in these emotions which are so often shunned in our society

Sarah Weber Gallo presents FUNHEAD, a clubland fairytale dance about all things FUN. And youth. Characterized by risk, excess, effort, and gigantic messes, FUNHEAD sends dancers careening through layers of resistance headlong into the arena of fun and smack into the gritty aftermath. Or, another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody.

The Space Movement Project will present Six of One, an in-progress improvisational score in which dancers perceive the sensory feedback of singularity within a pairing. The work features an original sound design developed in collaboration with Chicago-based composer Shelly Steffens.
