Showcasing this innovative, diverse company, the program will feature new and reprised works from the company’s striking repertoire “expertly devised and stylish as they come” (Chicago Tribune).


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. In less than three years, the company has developed a diverse and respected repertoire. With works by distinguished choreographers Sidra Bell, Mónica Cervantes, Marguerite Donlon, Brian Enos, Robyn Mineko Williams, Banning Bouldin, Harrison McEldowney, Fernando Melo, Ohad Naharin, and Pupillo, Visceral Dance Chicago continues to challenge audiences’ expectations. In January of 2015, Visceral Dance Chicago was named one of Dance Magazine’s 25 to Watch, recognizing the company’s accomplishments and potential in the national community. “Visceral Dance Chicago breathes life into the Chicago arts community with their ability to intertwine complex human emotions with the raw beauty of dance and physical movement.” (Chicago Stage Standard)

Visceral Dance Chicago began their fourth season performing at the 25th Anniversary of Dance For Life, followed closely by a fall engagement at the Harris Theater presenting two new works by Erica Sobol and Artistic Director Nick Pupillo. In the spring of their 2016-2017 season, the company presented a full-length collaboration with the Chicago Philharmonic Orchestra, entitled The Dream. In this sensational production, which the Chicago Tribune called “a joy”, dance, literature and music converge to create an unforgettable experience. The two company will join forces again on April 29 at the North Shore Center for a remounting of this exciting production. 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).
