Tuesday Funk : Dance

We've told you before about New York City's Laura Peterson Choreography and their campaign to finance a visit to us here in Chicago. Well, apparently you listened to us because the company raised a bit more than their goal of $1,700. Thanks for your help, Funkers!

And tonight you get to reap the rewards of your generosity, as Laura Peterson meets Jason Adasiewicz's Rolldown in collision_theory, an evening of entirely improvised music and dance at Links Hall. Tickets are $12.00. Get yours now, and we'll see you there tonight!

What? collision_theory is a series of improvised performances of curated 'blind-dates' between musicians and dancers. At each show, seasoned improvisers from both disciplines meet for the first time to navigate an unpredictable landscape of spontaneous collaboration.

When? April 18, 2011 at 7:30 pm

Where? Links Hall, 3435 N. Sheffield Avenue, Chicago, IL

How much $12.00 ($10.00 for students and seniors)

Who? Laura Peterson with company members Kate Martel and Edward Rice will perform an evening-length improvisation with composer Jason Adasiewicz and his musicians! This series was created by Dan Mohr and Rachel Damon as part of Links Hall's Artistic Associate programming.


Laura Peterson is one of the most innovative choreographers at work in New York City, or anywhere for that matter. Her choreography is always supremely logical, whether rooted in organic forms or technological ideas or a hybrid of both, and devoid of the hackneyed vocabulary much of modern dance seems to comprise.

Want to see Laura Peterson Choreography perform in Chicago? They've been invited to participate in an exciting throwdown at Links Hall called collision_theory, but they need your assistance to do it. They're trying to raise $1,700 for production expenses in just 30 days with a kickass Kickstarter campaign. Won't you please help, Chicago?


Do it for the dancers.
