The Turbulence Project, DanceCircusí next collaboration, is a love letter, a documentary, a healing, a reclaiming of energy for the earth and our future. These dances by Artistic Director Betty Salamun convey deeply felt environmental concerns growing from the Avenues West Neighborhood, flowing from Lake Michiganís eroding shore, emerging through stages of grief, and, flying towards community.
9 CIRCLES by Bill Cain
Honorably discharged but later accused of a war crime in Iraq, American soldier Daniel Reeves must navigate an onslaught of commanding officers, public defenders, lawyers, preachers and psychiatrists who seek answers, excuses or culpability. Based on actual events, Bill Cain's psychological thriller is by turns shocking, mesmerizing and bitingly funny. Ultimately, it is the soldier who must discover his own path to truth, where he finds duty, war and justice are on a collision course with the indomitable, yet vulnerable, human spirit. Tickets $34-44.
