River North Dance Chicago's Fall Engagement
The season begins with the company’s Fall Engagement at The Harris Theater (205 E. Randolph Dr.) November 14 – 17. Treating audiences to three premieres, RNDC welcomes back Adam Barruch, Kevin Iega Jeff and Ashley Roland all of whom have previously choreographed pieces for the company. Barruch will introduce the company to his critically acclaimed “The Worst Pies in London” hailed by the “Chicago Tribune” as “funny, extravagant and sometimes smartly crude.” Iega Jeff’s “Dawn” will receive its world premiere danced by the full company, as will Ashley Roland’s “Get Out the Ghost,” choreographed for six dancers. Other pieces will include Nejla Yatkin’s stunning solo piece “Renatus,” Daniel Ezralow’s revival of fiercely physical urban meltdown “SUPER STRAIGHT is coming down…” (1989) and Frank Chaves’s own “Eva,” set to the haunting songs of the late songbird Eva Cassidy. Tickets ($30 - $75) are on-sale now at www.harristheaterchicago.org or by calling 312.334.7777.
