Join us Saturday, February 25th in Evanston as elements performs as part of Studio5′s new Fine Arts Series
The program will include a World Premiere by Artistic Director Mike Gosney as well as exclusive work by Princess Grace Award winner James Gregg.
Zodiac (working title) World Premiere by Artistic Director Mike Gosney. Taking inspiration from his studies as an astrologer, Gosney utilizes atmospheric music and symphonic remixes to paint a rich, moving portrait of the spiraling “dream within a dream” that is life. Music by Halcyon Fields, David Lang, Grace Davidson, and remixes of Max Richter.
The Misfortunate Beauty of Joe Danek, by guest choreographer James Gregg. Gregg, a 2016 Princess Grace Choreography Fellow, creates a touching pastoral to music by folk artist Chris Garneau in which three same-gender lovers weave in and out of each other’s lives.
The River, by resident choreographer Joseph Caruana. In this 2012 work, songs by Ugandan musician Geoffrey Oryema provide a hypnotic undercurrent for four vignettes revealing the individual struggles people face with inevitable change.
