{ Dd } Short Short List 2/29 – 3/6

 In Archives

This week began with 24 extra hours, why not use some of those leap year hours to try out some experimental dance performance? Here are two places to expand your horizons this week–for FREE!– in Chicago and NYC.

1. Mon, Ma, Mes at Chicago Cultural Center

Jack Ferver takes this disarming retrospective solo show on the road. What is fiction? What is reality? Ferver is the master of blurring the lines between the created persona and the self, with his unbelievable flair and outrageous humor.

March 3–4, 2016, at 6:30 p.m.
Chicago Cultural Center, Millennium Park Room (5th Fl South) – 78 E. Washington St.

FREE, no reservation necessary.

2. Maria Hassabi: PLASTIC at MoMA


Go to the museum to see visual art, stay for the free performance. Collapsing the space between performer and audience, you can observe magnificent dancers, wearing costumes by the design group threeasfour, up close as they move slowly through riveting, continuous motion. (Click here to read my review of the last Hassabi show I saw.)

Now through March 20th
during regular museum hours

FREE with museum admission.
