Vision, Faith, & Desire II Set for Pritzker in February
Vision, Faith, & Desire II: Dancemakers Inspired by Martha Graham will be co-presented by Winifred Haun & Dancers and the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE). The program will feature works by: Randy Duncan, Winifred Haun, Lizzie Leopold and former Graham principal dancer, Paul Sansardo. Jeff Hancock will premiere a new work. The program will also include the premiere of a new "Lamentation Variation," choreographed by Winifred Haun, using the creative structure provided by The Martha Graham Center of Contemporary Dance, as part their Lamentation Project. Full programming details will be released in early January 2014.
Vision, Faith, & Desire (VFD) began in early 2013 as a collaborative venture between Ms. Haun and
Ms. Leopold. The project's goal is to provide a platform for artists to situate their choreographic voices within the rich historical lineage of modern dance. VFD II represents a continuation of this goal by presenting artists who are part of the lineage of Martha Graham's technique and choreography. For its inaugural event in September 2013, VFD garnered great critical acclaim, including features in the Huffington Post, Chicago Tonight's (WTTW) new ArtBeat: Inside the Arts Blog, Dance Teacher magazine, RogueBallerina.com, and many others.
