If you’re looking for innovation and creativity through dance in Chicago, look no further than Chicago Dance Crash. Voted “Best Dance Company” earlier this year by The Reader, Chicago Dance Crash redefines the concept of dance, by combining traditional elements with modern technique, all with a sense of humor and a dash of flair.
With their fall production, The Drawing Board, Chicago Dance Crash elevates the audience to a new level, by handing over the creative reigns to fans and letting them choose the production! Since January, anyone on the internet could log onto Crash the Drawing Board and submit their own ideas to be the framework for the show. Chicago Dance Crash have taken some of the best and most outlandish ideas to create a show truly by the people and for the people. With ideas ranging from a pirate-ninja showdowns to Britney Spears joining juggling clowns to a piece simply titled “The Bunny,” you’ll have no idea what to expect as the dancers hit the stage. All you need to know is you’ll be thoroughly entertained.
The Drawing Board premiers tonight at the Ruth Page Center for the Arts, located at 1016 N. Dearborn. Performances are Friday and Saturday at 8pm, September 18th-26th. Tickets are $18 in advance or $20 at the door.
