Phoenix Rising Chicago Presents Gynaeceum


Phoenix Rising Chicago brings to you a unique and female-empowering evening of performing, visual, and multimedia art with over 50 local artists.

The mission of Gynaeceum is to bring local awareness to those affected by eating disorders, with proceeds benefiting The Awakening Center, and their locally-based eating disorder treatment services. A Gynaeceum in Ancient Greece was a building or portion of a house reserved for women, generally the innermost apartment. This Gynaeceum will feature a variety of female-originated works throughout the evening including world premiere dance works by Phoenix Rising Chicago.

All ticket sales benefit The Awakening Center, locally based eating disorder treatment services.
