Clinard at 20: Premiere of Everyday People Everyday Action

Clinard Dance Premieres ‘Everyday People Everyday Action’ at the National Museum of Mexican Art, November 24, 2019

Clinard Dance presents the premiere of Everyday People Everyday Action. The premiere is the culmination of a three year long project with Japanese photographer Akito Tsuda, inspired by his photos of Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood in the early 1990′s.

Sunday, Nov. 24
National Museum of Mexican Art 1852 W. 19th St. Chicago, IL
$25 $15 (Children & Seniors) Purchase tickets here
Time: 2pm.
The museum is open 10am-5pm and is free and open to the public.

Akito’s photography animates the disciplines of flamenco, beat-boxing, Gypsy jazz, and classical Spanish music, continuously shifting the background to the foreground, past to present. Photos of the neighborhood tailor shop, the shoemaker, a smiling face at the laundry excite flamenco’s percussive footwork to join in with the rhythms of the sewing machine, the washers/dyers and the complex sounds taken in while walking down 18th street. Peoples everyday repetitive actions/sounds are the percussive fuel that drive the performance’s choreography and tempo.

The premiere event will celebrate Clinard Dance’s 20th anniversary, with additional performances by the company’s Flamenco Quartet Project, a post-performance reception and discussion with Akito Tsuda, and a ticketed raffle including free classes, the chance to sit in on future rehearsals, and more to be announced.

Audience members are invited to contribute one or more photographs taken in their neighboorhood, past or present, in exchange for raffle tickets.

Performance starts at 2pm. The museum is open 10am-5pm and is free and open to the public.
