Ten Years in the Making: A Preview of RE|dance group's Decennial Season Kickoff at the Hamlin Park Fieldhouse Theater | Newcity Stage
RECOMMENDED RE|dance group is the brainchild of creative partners Lucy Vurusic Riner and Michael Estanich. For more than ten years, they have engaged in an ongoing long-distance collaboration spanning from the company's and Riner's home base of Chicago to Estanich's home in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. Inspired by the challenge to collectively make dances while living in different cities, they have developed an individualized process that involves devising movement material when together and formulating the conceptual grounding of their work when apart. This intentional dialogue has created the company's signature theatrical approach to movement and has led to the development of a body of evocative dance theater that investigates the indelible intricacies of human relationships. This month, the company kicks off its decennial season with the Chicago premiere of two companion pieces choreographed by Estanich, "The Biggest Wail From The Bottom Of My Heart" and "What Love Looks Like."
