Join us for Thodos Dance Chicago’s final company performance for one night only on the Auditorium Theatre’s landmark stage. Come FULL CIRCLE as the company commemorates 25 years of artistry and innovation in its closing performance as an ensemble-based company. Thodos Dance Chicago presents an exhilarating evening of dance to celebrate its Silver Anniversary including a one-time-only performance of Founder and Artistic Director Melissa Thodos’ The Wheel Trilogy, which incorporates Reaching There (1986), Getting There (2011), and There, the final piece in the trilogy that will have its world premiere on this historic evening. The program also features the Chicago premiere of Bella Lewitzky’s Nos Duraturi, a mesmerizing, intricate work by the legendary West Coast choreographer. The Silver Anniversary performance opens with three short works: Brian Enos’ Acid Reign (created specifically for TDC’s anniversary season), company member Briana Robinson’s Uncovering, and Thodos’ Changing Strangers.
