ABOUT VISCERAL DANCE CHICAGO
Founded in 2013 by Artistic Director Nick Pupillo, Visceral Dance Chicago is a contemporary dance company dedicated to a bold and progressive world of movement. Having established a diverse repertoire featuring works by distinguished choreographers Sidra Bell, Mónica Cervantes, Robyn Mineko Williams and Pupillo, Visceral Dance Chicago continues to challenge audiences' expectations. In their Fall 2014 season, the company presented world premieres by Banning Bouldin, Harrison McEldowney and Pupillo. They also had the honor of presenting the company premiere of Ohad Naharin's Duet Mabul. In January, Visceral Dance Chicago was named one of Dance Magazine's 25 to Watch, recognizing the work the company has done in just two seasons. Following this distinction, the company's Spring 2015 season will feature world premieres by Brian Enos and Pupillo. In an "expertly devised and stylish" (Chicago Tribune) repertoire, Visceral Dance Chicago distinguishes its unique position in the Chicago, national, and international dance communities; "...the buzz about this troupe is more than justified" (Chicago Sun-Times).
Visceral Dance Chicago's vision - distinctive dancers, global choreographers, groundbreaking works - is committed to internal concepts of emotion combined with the natural instincts of the choreographers and dancers that stimulate audiences into a progressive world of bold contemporary dance.
Visceral Dance Chicago is a contemporary company dedicated to providing a comprehensive environment designed to cultivate dance education, creation and performance for choreographers, dancers and audiences.
