The Seven Industrial Sins

and something infinitely precious

The first piece, performed by the Cold Chicago Dance Company, is a dance/theater work on the theme of "the merchandised imagery skidding around in the contemporary brain." The second work, by Lookingglass Theatre Company's Laura Eason and Tracy Walsh, uses writings by Emily Dickinson and Virginia Woolf as well as the artists' own reflections on their ten-year friendship to explore female relationships. 7 PM.
