When: Thursdays-Saturdays. Continues through Nov. 7 2020
Cerqua Rivera takes its fall season online with this livestream concert, recorded earlier live at Evanston's Studio5. The performance will include excerpts from earlier pieces in the CRDT repertoire, American Catracho (directed by Wilfredo Rivera, with choreography by Christian Denice and Noelle Kayser) and Root (created by Monique Haley and Joe Cerqua). The evening also includes new work, Identity City, directed and curated by Rivera, featuring choreography by Shannon Alvis, Katlin Bourgeois, and A. Raheim White and music by Cerqua. The piece is the first in a four-year project examining concepts of gender identity. Finally, in Mood Swing, Rivera will lead three choreographers (Alvis, Bourgeois, and Haley) and composer Cerqua in developing duets between musicians and dancers that respond to the current pandemic crisis and social justice movement.
