IDC Hits The Stage With EVERYMAN, Runs 6/18-21 At Chicago's Vittum Theater
by BWW News Desk - Jun 18, 2009

Innervation Dance Cooperative (IDC), a Chicago non-profit, hits the stage again with Everyman, the classic rock ballet based on the medieval morality play, set to music by Led Zeppelin (listed below), running June 18-21 at Chicago's Vittum Theater. Enter into Everyman's world of debauchery just before she receives a visit from Death. Audiences will crack up, tear up, and rock out as our heroine desperately seeks a companion for her inevitable journey. IDC's collaborative creative process yields an athletic and eclectic, yet cohesive, movement quality that is the IDC signature. Music lovers will note the perfect marriage of the lyrics and themes of Led Zeppelin's songs to Everyman's plot and message. The meticulously chosen songs tell the story of a journey to death via denial, elation, and depression. There is nary a dull moment (or movement) in this 90-minute, evening-length show. The choreography of Everyman was created collaboratively by ensemble members Molly Beck, Elisa Carlson, Gwendolynn Gonwa, Amy Russell, Michael Sherman, and Amy Williams. The original staging of Everyman (in April 2008 at Hamlin Park Fieldhouse Theater) was so successful that IDC wanted to take another crack at it and expose the work to a wider audience. This remount boasts newly honed choreography, with new talent and casting, coming together to create an even more crowd-pleasing show. (more...)
