"Deliciously idiosyncratic." Chicago Tribune

Please join CDI/Concert Dance Inc as they present a preview of new works that will premiere this year at the Ravinia Festival in September. Your ticket includes the performance followed by a post-performance reception with the artists.

In 1985, artistic director Venetia Stifler choreographed the critically acclaimed “The Chicago Project,” a work combining contemporary dance, original music and photography by Frank Vodvarka that used Chicago's architectural landscape as a backdrop.

Her goal in 2017 is to reimagine this favorite dance again with her collaborator Vodvarka, using today’s technology and with the eyes of a choreographer who’s creative process and point of view have evolved. Come see how this evocative work by the Emmy Award-nominated choreographer has progressed, as well as a sneak peak at the other dances that will be performed at this summer’s Ravinia Festiva in September, followed by a question and answer session and reception with the artists.
