Winifred Haun & Dancers and the Leopold Group, two powerhouse Chicago modern dance companies, team up to explore a shared choreographic lineage and curate an evening of dance
Featuring new works by Winifred Haun, Lizzie Leopold, Ayako Kato, Lisa Thurrell, Peter Sparling and a re-imagining of Graham's 1930 masterpiece "Lamenation," Vision, Faith & Desire is both a retrospective and a launching pad. These performances offer audiences a rare opportunity to revisit danced history and simultaneously encounter its present. For both the audience and the artists, this event will work to highlight the ephemeral connectivity of a modern dance family tree.
