Mordine & Company Dance Theater
Mordine & Company Dance Theater is the Midwest's longest-running contemporary dance company, celebrating its 48th season beginning in the spring of 2017. Under the direction of Shirley Mordine, the Company has produced works whose coalition of choreography and theatre has won critical acclaim. Praised for original choreography combining wit and sheer movement with technical sophistication, the Company's work has been described as "a two-edged sword of comedy and drama" and "adventurous, audacious, gutsy, and energetic."
BraveSoul was born organically in 2016 as the newest iteration of a 15-year synergy between two of Chicago’s influential street dance artists: Daniel “BRAVEMONK” Haywood and Kelsa “K-Soul” Robinson. BraveSoul, which focuses on concert and site-specific dance performances, education and social/community-building practices, is rooted in the movement languages and cultures of Hip-Hop and House, as well as martial arts, a wide-range of improv traditions and other Afro-diasporic movement languages. BRAVEMONK and K-Soul share a connection with Spirit as a central driving force in their relationship to movement. As BraveSoul, they seek to engage the mind, heart and senses through embodied dialogue and collaborative artmaking processes.
