Artist-Presenter Collaborations for Dance Symposium
October 8, 10:30am-3pm
High Concept Lab

A full-day event produced by the Chicago Dancemaker’s Forum designed to prompt interaction, dialogue and outside-the-lines thinking about dance performance and presentation. Artistic Director Carrie Hanson will be talking about The Seldoms’ relationship with the Museum of Contemporary Art and MCA Stage presenters Yolanda Cursach and Peter Taub, through past projects Marchland (2010) and Power Goes (2015).


The Fifth by Philip Elson
October 13-15 at 7:30pm
Family Dance Matinee, Oct 13 at 3pm
Dance Center of Columbia College

For the first time, The Seldoms has commissioned a full-length work by an ensemble member. Philip Elson has created a highly charged multi-media dance experience that pulls the curtain back on cyberspace—The Fifth exposes the players in the newest domain of war. The Fifth bears Elson’s signature movement language full of vigorous geometry, quick direction changes, evocative imagery, and complex physical exchanges between dancers— using elasticized bands that connect and complicate relationships.

An artist/audience talk follows Thursday night’s performance.
