"unpredictable and imaginative." — American Theatre Magazine
Double Edge Theatre is a deeply collaborative, Massachusetts-based ensemble working in a unique form of devised physical theatre incorporating choreography, aerial flight, puppetry and circus arts. The Grand Parade (of the Twentieth Century), an original, multi-disciplinary piece of theatre is the first creation in the company’s multi-year Chagall Cycle. Imagined through the lens of visionary artist Marc Chagall's paintings, preview performances of The Grand Parade at The Dance Center will take audiences through a kaleidoscopic mash-up of the 20th century that echoes Chagall’s life, which spanned nearly a century, and summons the artist’s sensibilities and personal memories. Conceived and directed by artistic director Stacy Klein, original score by Russian composer Alexander Bakshi.
The Grand Parade is co-commissioned by Columbia College Chicago’s Theatre Department and The Dance Center of Columbia College Chicago.
FREE Pre-Performance Workshop begins at 2:15PM
