Chicago Danztheatre Ensemble Announces 18th Performance Season
Chicago Danztheatre Ensemble proudly presents their 18th Performance Season, The Point.
What is the point and what is it going to take? If the point is about us, how many fingers get pointed in the wrong direction or at the wrong person before enough is enough. The point is that this has always existed. The point is to redirect the conversation. The point is to respond. The point is to take action. The point is that this is about us. The point is about our individual and collective voices and sharing our experiences, our stories. The point is about responding to one another to come together. The point is to unite in what makes us different and take action. This 2018-2019 performance season is about the point.
