HYDE PARK — Clinard Dance Theatre will present “Chicago's Watershed: A 156-Mile Choreography” on Friday and Saturday at the Logan Center for the Arts.
The piece uses Igor Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring” and Flamenco dance to explore the role of the Chicago River in the life of the city.
The Estrella Duo will provide piano accompaniment for Clinard’s choreography and Dmitry Samarov will provide video-projected inkwork as a backdrop.
“It's a meditation on the hard-won and often brutal beauty of this most American of cities,” according to the Logan Center. “By marrying the avant garde of the last century to this interdisciplinary work, Clinard reveals a new way to look at a place we thought we knew.”
Both shows will start at 8 p.m. at the Logan Center, 915 E. 60th St., on the University of Chicago campus.
Tickets are $25, $10 for students.
