BEHIND THE CURTAIN: Pink Nights Never End

Presented as part of the Ruth Page Dance Series

Northeastern Illinois University Auditorium
Steinberg Fine Arts Center
3701 West Bryn Mawr


  • Tuesday, March 1, 2022 - 3:00pm

The Ruth Page Center for the Arts is proud to present the first of two BEHIND THE CURTAIN events for 2022. Join us as Cuban-born choreographer, Rigo Saura discusses his journey in dance, as well as his process for creating “Pink Nights Never End” on the Ruth Page Civic Ballet Training Company. Last year, Saura was selected for the City-Wide Production Residency Pilot Project launched by Chicago Dancemakers Forum, which matched dance making artists with performance venues, while also promoting new collaborations, paid artistic development, employment for designers and technicians, and innovative ways of sharing dance with audiences and other supporters. Saura was paired with The Ruth Page Center for the Arts performance venue, and worked to create this new contemporary work with the Training Company. The creative process also included collaboration with lighting designer, Sarah Lackner, and writer Katerine Ricardo.

The lecture/demonstration will feature an excerpt of “Pink Nights Never End” performed live by the Ruth Page Civic Ballet Training Company.
