Aerial Dance Chicago will take to the sky on Saturday, April 15 at 7:30pm at The Orpheum Theatre for a performance that launches concert dance into the creative and expressive possibilities of the vertical realm. The concert, Written on the Body, is a specially curated mix of daring new work alongside signature choreography and audience favorites from the past two decades of Aerial Dance Chicago’s original choreography. This program also highlights a new creation by ADC, performed by Knox College students and dancers from the local community. This concert is produced through a partnership between the Knox College Dance Department and The Orpheum Theatre!
