Winifred Haun & Dancers in Trashed by Winifred Haun (photo courtesy of Winifred Haun).
Winifred Haun & Dancers will present their highly acclaimed new work, Trashed, as part of Links Hall’s new Trade Routes: a Festival of Artistic Exchange, on November 30 and December 2. Trashed is choreographed by Chicago Dancemaker, Winifred Haun and Australian Contemporary Circus Artist, Emma Serjeant. The new work combines Modern Dance and Contemporary Circus to tell the story of how humans have to come to
clutter their lives with too much stuff, and how all that stuff keeps us from each other.
Winifred Haun & Dancers will share two evenings with Kanopy Dance Co. of Madison, WI. Kanopy will present three works from repertory: Bound and Determined, a trio which explores the societal effects of silencing citizens, Lamentation Variation, created in conjunction with the Martha Graham Dance Co. and Prelude & Fugue, a group work set to music by Johann Sebastian Bach.
Winifred Haun & Dancers is one of five Chicago-based artists/companies to be selected to participate in Trade Routes. Each of these five Chicago-based projects were nominated by a local or national presenter as the best of Chicago’s home grown in the 2016-2017 performing arts season, and were selected by Links Hall as projects that should not only been seen again, but should be granted the opportunity to represent Chicago-based performance nationally. Each local artist has selected an out-of-town partner they would like to host in Chicago and split a bill with during the Festival.
The performance takes place on Thursday, November 30 and Saturday, December 2 at 7:00 p.m. For more information or for tickets, visit likshall.com.
