Winifred Haun & Dancers Announces 2020/21 Season

Winifred Haun & Dancers will present a full artistic season for 2020|21. After successfully pivoting and creating a series of high quality online dance events during the Spring and Summer of 2020, the Company will continue to provide creative, inspiring, and safe dance events for it's audiences and the general public for the Fall of 2020 and beyond.

On Sunday, October 4 at 4:00pm, the Company will premiere a new site
specific work, Steps in the Garden: Dance at Cheney Mansion. Choreographed by Winifred Haun, the work will be presented for a Live Audience, and then presented again as a Live Stream on October 17. Steps in the Garden will be presented entirely outdoors and designed for the unique garden path and spaces found outside Oak Park's Cheney Mansion. The work will be for six Company dancers, who will also contribute to the choreographic process. Local composer Barry Bennett will provide live musical accompaniment. This event is presented in partnership with the Park District of Oak Park, and has been approved by the Oak Park Dept. of Public Health. More Info & Ticket link:

On Saturday, October 24 at 5:00pm, the Company will present the sixth Wine with Wini event. Presented on Zoom, this one will focus on Steps in the Garden, and how movement was developed and created for the Cheney Mansion garden. The event will start with a short video that includes rehearsal footage, as well as footage from the premiere. Attendees will have the opportunity to see how the work's themes were developed and evolved, and they'll have the opportunity to ask questions of the artists who performed the work. Wine with Wini events are BYOW, they are only 20 minutes, and they are Pay-What-You-Can.
