HEAD ON is an evening of dance presented by women and non-binary choreographers whose works center on confronting the raw, marginalized and glamorous realities and perceptions of their bodies. The four works shown will be wide-ranging in style and in the ways that they zoom in on a political nature of being, for women and non-binary individuals. Included in the program will be a work by conceived and performed by a diverse group of young women (roughly ages 15-25) from diverse backgrounds including Syrian refugee and Orthodox Jewish communities of NW Chicago, lead by Shawn Lent, a performance by Burlesque Queen, Mz Mr and dancers, a work by Hillary Aarons, and a work by Ysaye McKeever. It will be an evening of intersectional feminism celebrated through moving bodies, as well as an interrogation of dance as a means of intervention. The proceeds from this event will benefit Dance Peace, an organization that provides arts education for young Syrian Refugees in Chicago.
