Last fall, Thodos Dance Chicago made their Auditorium Theatre debut, and See Chicago Dance raved that their “eclectic program at the Auditorium Theatre proved that its ensemble of well-trained dancers can do anything that is thrown at them.” This January, the Auditorium is thrilled to bring back the company that the Chicago Sun-Times calls “intriguing” and “impressive” for a world premiere piece celebrating the life of legendary Japanese-American dancer Sono Osato. Sono’s Journey will trace Osato’s path from her audition on the Auditorium Theatre stage that launched her dance career at age 14, to her position today, at the age of 96, as one of the most inspirational, barrier-breaking artists in American dance.
Programming also includes:
- Near Light choreographed by Melissa Thodos
- Memoirs choreographed by Garfield Lemonius
- All You Need Is choreographed by Taylor Mitchell
- Master Class
- JAN 9 | 9AM
