Open Rehearsal for “Trashed”


We are so excited to show you excerpts of “Trashed,” a work-in-progress, created during our recent trip to Australia! So, we’re having a public Open Rehearsal on:

Sunday, November 6 at 4:30pm
Lou Conte Dance Studio

Tickets: $6, Buy on-line or at the door
1147 W. Jackson, Chicago
(Street parking usually available.)

“Trashed” was created in collaboration with renowned Australian circus artist, Emma Serjeant, during a two week residency at Circus Oz, a Melbourne circus arts organization. This will be the first public viewing in the US of this work-in-progress!

“Trashed” is a completely new movement tour-de-force that combines Modern Dance with Contemporary Circus to tell the story of how humans have to come to clutter their lives with too much stuff, and how all that stuff keeps us from each other.

This Open Rehearsal will also present a solo by the amazing New York City based dance artist, Teresa Fellion of “BodyStories: Teresa Fellion Dance.”

There will be a discussion about each artist’s work, and their dance making process, and you’ll have a chance to respond, comment and give feedback on the works.

We’re in Melbourne!


We are so thrilled to be in Australia! Rehearsals for our latest work, “Trashed,” began last week with our collaborators, Emma Serjeant Performance, at Circus Oz in Melbourne. We are having a blast working with Emma and her artists. And we’re actually finding a way to blend contemporary dance with Circus. The results are amazing.

If you’d like to see all that we’re up to, join us for our:
Facebook Live Stream on Wednesday, September 28 at 9:30pm (Chicago time). Click here for more info.






Countdown to Australia


August 9, 2016 – 37 days till we leave!

Yesterday, we started our circus training with the amazing Shayna Swanson. Shayna is the director of Aloft Circus Arts (which will have a new home soon!). So far, we’ve learned some techniques for handstands, 2-highs, walls, back walkovers, and more.

Its been fun and exciting and we’re getting stronger every day! By the time we get to Melbourne, we’ll be ready for our collaboration with awesome Australian circus artist, Emma Serjeant.

Look what Shayna got us to do!
