Khecari & The Humans

FEBRUARY 6, 7 & 8, 2014 | 8:00PM  

Antonick and Meyer are uncommon in that they set out with big goals and, more often than not, exceed them — Time Out, Chicago

[Rachel Bunting] offers an immersion in the joys of imagination — The Reader, Chicago

Khecari, a collaborative duo of Jonathan Meyer and Julia Rae Antonick, and The Humans, led by artistic director Rachel Bunting, will share a program featuring new works by these three Chicago-based choreographers. Antonick’s cresset: vibrant, rusting is a shifting landscape of meticulous movement constructed around themes of decay’s fruition with original music performed live by Joe St. Charles. Meyer’s Esther and the Omphali is a duet for two men with golden beards, an ode to the koan of perpetual suffering and the attrition effected by love for the glistening, nascent world. For The Humans, Bunting’s My ghosts wear clothes (working title) delves into time-based phenomena such as déjà vu, the fourth dimension, aging and the philosophy of “now” using a disparate collage of images and objects.
