River North Dance Chicago to Present Two World Premieres at the Auditorium Theatre, 3/28

The Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University's "Made in Chicago" Series continues with River North Dance Chicago (RNDC), Saturday, March 28 at 7:30 p.m., presenting two world premiere pieces in a single evening. The performance features "Beast," the choreographic debut of RNDC company member Hanna Brictson, and the all-new "the frost that binds" by three-time RNDC guest choreographer Adam Barruch. Led by 2014 Chicagoan of the Year (Chicago Tribune) Frank Chaves, RNDC continues their 25th Anniversary celebration with this versatile, fresh spring performance. Tickets ($27- $67) are available online at AuditoriumTheatre.org, by calling (800) 982-ARTS (2787) or in-person at the Auditorium's Box Office (50 E. Congress Pkwy).

Rounding out the program is the "deeply sensual" (Chicago Tribune) "Flesh" by Spanish choreographer Iva?n Pe?rez and two works from RNDC artistic director Frank Chaves. Chaves' "In The End," a powerful all-male work for six dancers, complements the rousing "Habaneras," an ode to the 1950s-era Big Band sounds of Cuba, Chaves' native home. One of RNDC's signature works, "Habaneras" is presented as part of a special anniversary revival during the company's spring engagement. This staple work features the full company and celebrates the scores of Cuba's musical luminaries, including Ernesto Lecuona, Carlos Puebla and Silvio Rodri?guez.

"The excitement continues to build for our 'Made in Chicago' series," said Auditorium Theatre Executive Director Brett Batterson. "We're honored to have yet another celebrated Chicago company bring two world premieres to our stage. We're also thrilled to continue our partnership with River North Dance. This will be the third consecutive season that the company will be presenting on the Auditorium's landmark stage."

The "Made in Chicago" Dance Series is sponsored by The Boeing Company.
