The winter season is never quite complete without Thodos Dance Chicago’s annual winter concert. The vibrant contemporary dance troupe consistently delivers exciting and fresh choreography but this season’s show commemorates the company’s 20th anniversary so expect an extra special performance.
The winter concert kicks off at the Harris Theater on March 2 and 3 at 8PM, with a two part program. The first half showcases “The White City: Chicago’s Colombian Exhibition 1983,” the acclaimed piece was named best dance of 2011 by the Chicago Sun Times and draws on Chicago’s rich history with brisk moves and inviting colors. The second portion features ‘Getting There” by Melissa Thodos, a thrilling performance full of quick execution. The concert will be capped off by two historical dances that have snared the title of audience favorites over the years, “Chant” and “Piece By Piece.” Both feature Melissa Thodos’ athletic choreography borrowing from diverse dance forms. Tickets range from $20-$60. Thodos Dance Chicago tours nationally and internationally and is noted for an innovative presence in American contemporary dance. The winter concert will mark the company’s only Chicago performance this season so don’t miss it.
